Documented as being grown at Monticello by Thomas Jefferson. One of the most popular lettuces in the early 1900’s, but now very hard to find the original black-seeded strain that we offer. Small heads measure only 6-8″ in diameter.
Slobolt Lettuce A garden standard since 1946. Becoming extremely hard to find. Broad and frilly green leaves grow especially well in the spring, but will grow well even in to the hottest days of summer. The best flavored of all the Grand Rapids.
This lettuce is photogenic! Beautiful enough to stand alone as an ornamental, but also one of the best tasting varieties available. Always one of the last varieties to bolt in our trials and retains its nice sweet flavor all through the season.
Ice Queen Lettuce This heirloom has an excellent tolerance to heat and is slow to bolt. Wonderful crisp and sweet leaves, top of the class for iceberg-types. Can be used as a leaf lettuce, or allowed to make a nice crisphead.
