Ella Kropf Organic Lettuce Seeds

$ 3.25 USD

Lactuca sativa.  Organic.

Donated to Seed Savers Exchange in 2005 by Maynard Kropf, grandson of Amish Mennonites Samuel and Ella May Kropf. They acquired it circa 1930 from a man in Stewardson, Illinois, and it became a family favorite. 

Tender green softball-sized heads with round leaves and pleasantly sweet flavor. 

Butterhead, 50-60 days.  Grow in full sun to partial shade.  Prefers cooler weather, making it an ideal early spring and late fall crop.

Germination is 7-14 days, thin to 6-8" apart.
