As described by Seed Savers Exchange: "Donated to SSE in 1988 by Pam Andrew of Arizona. It was given to her by her 85-year-old great-aunt, Flossie Cramer, of Crawford County, IL. Flossie's grandmother, Emma Hadley, grew the lettuce when Flossie was a child (around 1915). It was a family favorite used in a wilted lettuce salad with hot bacon dressing. The dark purple tinged leaves are buttery, crisp and slightly sweet. Butterhead, 40-50 days."

Direct sow lettuce in the garden in April and again in late summer for a fall crop. Plant seeds every few weeks until mid-May for a continuous harvest. You can also start lettuce indoors in the winter and set out seedlings and seed at the same time!
