Grandpa Admire's

*Ark of Taste Heirloom*
This might be our favorite lettuce we grow here at Uprising and one that deserves a better look from market growers. Admires’ produces VERY large blocky dense green heads blushed with just the right amount of red to the tips of the leaves. Extremely uniform it holds up well to packing. Some classify it as a butterhead which I don’t think is entirely right (probably more akin to Batavian/summercrisp types), it will form a loose head if left to full maturity. Firm texture similar to a tender romaine. Presented to the Seed Saver Exchange in 1977 by 90 year old Cloe Lowrey, granddaughter to civil war veteran George Admire (b. 1822).
55 days. WG


Packet: 1g (~800 seeds)
