This one surprised me. Pick up a nine pack from Bonnie on a whim. They did remarkably well. Heads are small but crisp. Most important they headed by early April.

Crisphead variety. Climate dictates success with this group of lettuces, a long mild growing season is required for perfect head formation. 70 days from seed.
