We are always on the lookout for distinctive new additions to our salad mix. Goldrush has a super frilly and branched leaf structure resembling frisee almost more than a lettuce but without the bitterness. Chartreuse in color, it is great as a cutting lettuce and matures into a stunning if not compact head. Somewhat similar to salad standard “Tango” but lighter in color and more wavy than serrated appearance.

Medium. Prefers well-drained, and evenly moist soil and is sensitive to low pH.
Uneven watering can result in tip burn, the browning of the leaf margins, which is the result of an inability of the plant to move calcium to the growing edge fast enough to meet its growth needs. Consistent, evenly moist soil or calcium amendments can be beneficial if this seems to be a problem.
Hot weather can cause premature bolting. Generally, when the plants begin to stretch upwards (to flower), the leaves become bitter and the eating quality poor.
