  1. Lettuce 'Bijella'

    Lettuce 'Bijella'

    Here’s a newer-to-us mini red oakleaf from Europe, similar in growth to the much-loved “Oscarde” (dense wavy oakleaf heads) but even smaller and slower to bolt. Lovely burgundy leaves with emerald green hearts and oakleaf-meets-butterhead tenderness.

  2. cracoviensis

    Lettuce 'Cracoviensis'

    *Heirloom*
    Goodness this lettuce is a dazzling beauty. It comes on fast and full with an open growth habit and slightly elongated savoyed leaves that are a soft green blushed with red darkening to purple  near the tips. Lovely and quick for salad mix but also incredible as a large (12-16”) loose head. The bolting stems, referred to as both “celtuce” and “asparagus lettuce”  in China are also peeled and eaten fresh or lightly sautéed. Described in Vilmorin’s, “The Vegetable Garden” in 1885, it is a French heirloom that is as beautiful as it is versatile.

  3. goldrush

    Lettuce 'Goldrush'

    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.

  4. aussie yellow

    Lettuce, 'Australian Yellowleaf'

    *Heirloom*
    For a long time we were single-mindedly obsessed with finding redder and redder lettuces for our salads. Now we place just as high (if not higher) a value on a really striking green like Aussie Yellow. This beautiful chartreuse colored lettuce grows enormous loose heads with blistered, crinkled leaves. And yet, almost no-one gives it a chance!  You can. Be a rebel. An Australian heirloom.

  5. emerald fan

    Lettuce, 'Emerald Fan'

    We love this variety as a baby cutting lettuce. Unusually long and slender baby leaves bring a good mustard or chicory (Italian dandelion?) look to salad mixes without the more adventurous flavors. As a full sized head, we found it somewhere between a deer tongue and a romaine with clean, upright habit and satisfying crunch. A lovely variety bred by Jonathan Spero of Lupine Knoll Farm.

  6. admires

    Lettuce, '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).

  7. hyper red

    Lettuce, 'Hyper Red Rumpled Wave'

    With a name like that you know it’s got to be a Morton Lettuce! In this case, the name says it all. Rich dark burgundy red plants with very deeply textured leaves, just the type of folds and ridges that hold onto dressings in a salad. Bigger and better for marketing as heads than Merlot.

  8. Lettuce, 'Italienischer'

    Lettuce, 'Italienischer'

    *Heirloom* 
    Now that’s a lot of salad in one head of lettuce! This classy green oakleaf gets HUGE! Extremely uniform, great eating quality, and slow to bolt, this variety has won a spot in our garden for years to come. Be sure to give it plenty of space.

  9. Lettuce, 'La Brillante'

    Lettuce, 'La Brillante'

    (Lactuca sativa) Eric, having joined us from the Willy Wonka factory of lettuce breeding that is Wild Garden Seed, has upped our lettuce game here at Uprising with his enthusiasm for the crop. Digging through the listings of the national GRIN germplasm database, he found several commercially bred castoffs, that never saw the light of day or were inexplicably dropped from the seed trade. Brillliante is one such variety, somewhat famous for being the source of the gene that confers resistance to verticilium wilt, now widely found in all modern lettuces which display that trait. While we love deep reds in lettuce, we appreciate a good green just as much. Bright chartreuse green heads grow quite large and remind us quite a bit of an all green version of one of our very favorite lettuces, Grandpa Admires. If left in the field long enough the hearts form a loose head of deliciously folded and crunchy leaves. Why it never made the big time, we’ll never know, but it’s become a keeper in our collection.

  10. orielles

    Lettuce, 'Les Orielles du Diablo' (Devil's Ears)

    *Heirloom* 
    Along with its catchy name, this lettuce caught the attention of our market customers who loved it for its unique rosette shape, long and pointy “deer tongue” type leaves and nutty flavor. Glossy deep green leaves with burgundy hues, it is a pleasure to see and eat. Big heavy heads.
