About the Merchant

This variety has been a seed farm stand-by since the beginning. We love to tell the story of our varieties, and the story of this one begins in the name. When we talk about locally grown food, we must remember that most seed has traveled thousands of miles and back again before landing in our gardens.The name of this exquisite lettuce – which is huge, sweet and slow to bolt – means "Italian" in German: proof that gardens everywhere are cosmopolitan gathering spots of plants from around the globe.That may be what attracted us to it in the first place, but it's stellar performance, great flavor, and huge proportions keep us growing and selecting and offering it each year. This is our favorite "thin and eat" varieties: the heads do get really large that we harvest every other when they are spaced 10" apart to let the remaining ones reach their pull potential.
