Neutral Farmerdill On Jan 10, 2013, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

" Bountifully large, pale green butterhead with excellent disease resistance. In our 2012 spring butterhead trials of 13 varieties, Mirlo, more than any other variety, screamed “Eat me!” Tender leaves have a luxurious buttery appearance and large, flat heads an especially soft and cloud-kissed look. Well-filled, dense heart. For its size, Mirlo is relatively early. Widely adapted but best performance in spring and summer. Very strong on internal tipburn." High Mowing Seeds
