This recently introduced variety was bred by Dr. Baggett at Oregon State. Its parentage is a combination of Ithaca and Salinas. The objective of the breeding work was to develop a head lettuce that would mature in summer's heat without bolting and was also resistant to tip-burn and rib discoloration. Summertime consistently yields the highest percentage of usable heads in trials. The flavor is good and texture is very crisp. If there is any negative to this variety, it is that the heads are not super large, but this is of little concern to the home gardener. 500 seeds.
