  1. Lettuce 'Barnwood Gem'

    Lettuce 'Barnwood Gem'

    (Lactuca sativa) Another selection from the USDA, donated to their collection in 1979 by the Agricultural Experiment Station in Davis, California. Miniature, dark green, upright plants enveloping a blanched yellow core. Thick, crunchy, and sweet leaves form palm-sized heads which are perfect quartered and served as a wedge salad for one or two.
    45-50 days. UO

    Packet: 1g (~800 seeds)

    Starting at: $3.50

  2. cimarron

    Lettuce 'Cimarron'

    *Heirloom*
    This lettuce is Outstanding.  Everything you want in a Romaine and so much more.  Beautiful deep bronze-burgundy heads are large at 10-12”, crispy but more tender then most Romaine and very slow to bolt. Grown since the 18th century and going strong in the 21st.  
    65 days. UO

    Packet: 1g (~600 seeds)

    Starting at: $3.50

  3. flashy trout

    Lettuce 'Flashy Trout's Back'

    *Heirloom* 
    A selection from the venerable Austrian heirloom variety “Forellenschluss” for more uniform speckling.  Flashy Trout is a beautiful green romaine with stunning splashes of wine red speckles. As tender as romaines get, the apple green speckled hearts rival the butterheads for summer salad sumptuousness (say that five times fast). The variety has been traced back as far as 1793 and has come into current favor thanks to the efforts of Arche Noah, the Austrian heirloom genetic preservation project. A truly beautiful, deliciously sweet and buttery lettuce.

  4. jericho

    Lettuce 'Jericho'

    A great arrow in our romaine quiver, Jericho was bred to excel in the heat of summer with excellent resistance to tip burn. Don’t laugh. It gets hot here sometimes. No really! Remember that one time in 2009… Well anyway, hot season or cool, it’s one heck of a romaine at any time of the growing season. A beautiful and unusual luminescent chartreuse green color makes this savoy leafed, very large framed romaine a standout. Consistently drew compliments from our accounts when we grew romaine for wholesale markets and gaining traction among commercial growers.

  5. Lettuce 'Little Gem'

    Lettuce 'Little Gem'

    Alright. This is so cute its ridiculous. Like kittens and puppies play-wrestling together… on the beach… with baby seals rubbing noses in the background. One of the few lettuces that seems to have become “branded” and is referenced by name on menus at fancy restaurants. A mini, single serve romaine, it stands about 6-8” inches tall with a tight structure, dense heart, and great crunch. Often presented simply cut in half and dressed as a side salad. Plant denser than full sized lettuces, it doesn’t need much space.

  6. pic

    Lettuce 'Parris Island Cos'

    That’s Parris Island, South Carolina not Paris, France. Bred by the USDA and Clemson Ag Extension in 1952, Parris has stood the test of time as classic, big, market-quality romaine. We’ve sold this to restaurants for Caesar salads, and to supermarkets by the case. Excellent texture, crunch and vigorous upright habit. Dark green, uniform, productive work horse romaine. Some resistance to tip burn.

  7. Lettuce 'Winter Density'

    Lettuce 'Winter Density'

    This 19th century English lettuce is an almost universally popular classic and for a good reason. We like to think of Winter Density as a butterhead for the cold rainy months. Somewhere between a butterhead and romaine it gets the best qualities of both: densely wrapped heads of tender leaves from the butterhead and elongated upright habit for good airflow and keeping it out of the mud from the romaine. Standing at about 8” it is a bit of a mini head, lending itself to denser plantings than full sized lettuces. It’s a great choice to close out the lettuce growing season, hardy to light frosts, but shouldn’t be pigeonholed into that role as it is a great, bolt resistant succession cropper all season long. Does not tolerate heat during germination which triggers seed dormancy. UO

  8. Lettuce, 'Eruption'

    Lettuce, 'Eruption'

    (Lactuca sativa) A true mini volcano of a lettuce, Eruption displays Dark red tips over light green buttery-crunchy-romaine leaves, all wrapped around a pink magma core. Small “Latin” style heads, slightly larger than Little Gems, with an upright stature. This lettuce has been found to be resistant to multiple strains of Sclerotinia (Lettuce Drop), and Verticillium Wilt, in experiments by the USDA in California, and has been used to breed that resistance into Latin and Romaine lettuces.  The pink core makes a stunning cross section, perfect for a gem-type salad, and the flavor is that of a crunchy, sweet Romaine.  A relatively recent Enza Zaden variety, dropped into the USDA Germplasm Repository, and plucked out by Eric in a scan of interesting sounding lettuces. Slow to bolt.
    28 (baby leaf) -50 days. UO
