Grandma Hadley's Organic Lettuce Seeds

$ 3.25 USD

Lactuca sativa.  

Donated to Seed Savers Exchange 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.

Grows best in cooler weather.  Grow in full sun to partial shade.
