NEW! Lettuce: Dutch Brown
CERTIFIED ORGANIC, HEIRLOOM SEED, 1 packet (250 seeds)
Lactuca saliva (50-55 days) This heirloom green lettuce with touches of bronze, forms a small loose head with deliciously crispy large leaves. Robust and hardy, Dutch Brown is particularly suitable in cool, harsh conditions. It's been said that Thomas Jefferson liked this variety so much, he planted it repeatedly in his winter garden at Monticello. We like it too!
