"A very versatile little gem type lettuce. Dragoon is quick to fill, and can be harvested as a mini little gem to pair with Rhazes in the cooler seasons, or allowed to get bigger than Spretnak spring, summer and fall. 6 tall and 9 wide at top. Shows a higher leaf count than Spretnak, a higher percentage of romaine and a darker green; good field holding." Osborne
