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.
