Looseleaf variety. This variety is a family heirloom sent to Seed Savers Exchange in 1983 by SSE member Mark Reusser. His father obtained it from Urias Martin, whose Mennonite ancestors likely brought it in the early 1800s from Pennsylvania to Ontario. The thick juicy leaves are green and speckled with red. It contains a mild flavour perfect for salads and sandwiches.

Growing Instructions

Sow direct seed 1” apart and ¼” in depth. Germination period is 7-14 days. Sow continuously for a constant supply of lettuce. Best grown in cooler weather. Plant in full sun or partial shade.
