CIMMARON LETTUCE (58 days heirloom)


Germ 4-10 days
Heirloom – 1700’s
This Cos lettuce (romaine) is a unique bronze-red color, like no other we’ve ever seen. Its tall elongated leaves are hearty and delicious, and harvest can be conducted over a long period as it is slow to bolt. This variety dates back to the 18th century, but hasn’t been offered in this country for years. Our grower discovered some seed in a warehouse and a few were still viable, thus it was brought back on the market. 500 seeds


Indoors- 3-4 weeks before planting outside. Sow 1/4” deep in cells with soil temps 55-70 degrees. Transplant out 8-12” apart.

Outdoors- Sow 1/4” “deep, 1” apart. Thin to 6-12”, depending on the size of lettuce you want from baby to full heads. Keep moist during germination.

Harvest- cut whole head at base or individual leaves before lettuce starts to bolts and becomes bitter in the heat and long days summer.

Tips- Plant into fertile soil with lots of organic matter and adequate water for optimum growth. Sow heavy seeded rows every 10-14 days for baby greens using the 1 oz. Pinetree Lettuce Mix for a season long supply of lettuce.

Easy and delicious!

I love this lettuce and I've been telling everyone I know about it. My kids don't like lettuce but they ate it straight out of the garden like little goats! I let some bolt and the pollinators loved it. The bees did lots of happy dances!

Lovely Lettuce

This was a very strange spring here in northern Michigan. We had nearly freezing temps and 2 weeks later a heat wave with humidity. Even so this lovely lettuce germinated well, survived the heat and tastes amazing. Its a rockstar in my book!
