Great for the heat!

Bought these seeds based on their heat resistance, and figured the perfect test would be Texas in August. They did not disappoint! I have 3 heads growing, and they are strong and healthy with sweet leaves. Will be planting more for sure!

Poor germination

Disappointed in the germination rate compared to other heat resistant lettuces. Will try again though cuz I'd like this one to work.

Tall crispy Jericho romaine

I've also been growing Jericho romaine lettuce for about 15 years, and it is the tallest and crispiest and delicious lettuce and lasts from summer into fall.

I've grown Jericho for about 15 years. It has consistently been the best lettuce in the garden. tall, tight heads, great flavor and really resistant to bolting even in the heat of summer.
