All season crop

I have grown winter density for about 5 years in Central Ct which is zone 6. It had been very reliable as both a spring, early fall and late fall/early winter crop. If you have a greenhouse I would expect it could possibly be harvested all winter. Has a nice flavor and not bothered by any insects.

fall planting of Density lettuce didn't pan out

I purchased Density lettuce from you folks in early October. It arrived very promptly and I planted immediately. Germination was only so so. Further, progression from that point was a flop. We had a very rainy and mild October so I was a bit surprised that it didn't thrive. Will try the remainder of the packet come spring

Great lettuce to winter over.

Planted in cold frames inside a unheated hoop house in late fall provides a late winter, early spring harvest. I have found this lettuce winters over well and has a nice tender non bitter flavor.

One of my favorites

Been growing this variety in central Maine for many years. I'd describe it as a cross between a butterhead and a romaine. I start all my lettuce inside and set the seedlings out mid-late May. They finish into lovely heads before the weather turns hot but are quick to bolt when that happens. I start a crop for the fall in mid summer. These finish just before the weather turns cold and then hold in the garden for weeks under natural refrigeration if you protect them from that first frost.
