This vivid loose-leaf variety catches the eye and is delicious on the plate. The green, glossy leaves are meatier and more savoyed (crinkly) than other loose head types, and the 9” heads tend to be tighter and more compact. Flavor is very good and the exceptional crispness of each leaf is a real advantage. 500 seeds
