Lettuce: Crispleaf/Head

For some, this is what lettuce is all about—very crisp, juicy, non-bitter, and unassertive...often a blanched head that actually crunches if you bite into it. Some varieties develop as open rosettes until full maturity, with well-pigmented bite sized leaves perfect for hefty salad mix. Leaves can be very fancy at the young-cut age, and heavy salad for its size.

 Anuenue (Lettuce)  Anuenue 
A sweet green header from Hawaii, of all places. Can you hear the winds sing “ah-new-ee-new-ee” as a rainbow arches over your paradise...? ‘Anuenue’ (rainbow) works as a thick green cut-leaf for salad, or as an easy, heat tolerant, non-bitter, full-heading lettuce for market. Undemanding, mellow heads, bred for sun, heat, and humidity. pricing and more info...

 Cardinale (Lettuce)  Cardinale 
A wine red Batavian crisp-leaf, especially suited to cutting for salad mix because of its juicy crunch, heft, shelf life and well-proportioned leaves. Forms open rosettes for easy picking until full maturity, then folds itself into a beautiful red crisphead. We have saved this grower favorite from commercial extinction. pricing and more info...

 Concept (Lettuce)  Concept 
Striking visual appeal in pure crisp green. A cross between crispleaf and romaine types, creating an open whorled effect in the full head, and a very juicy crunchy romainesque flavor. Slow bolting. pricing and more info...

 Cougar Batavian (Lettuce)  Cougar Batavian Farm Original Variety! OSSI Pledged Variety
A smooth, svelt, bronzed batavian lettuce with a crisp juicy texture, sweet in the heat of summer for cutting mix or fresh market heads with creamy hearts. We found this as an errant seedling in a flat of unrelated lettuce. It appears to be one of our batavian types crossed to 'Brown Goldring'--and it tastes that way too. Uniform heads with bronze slightly ruffled leaf margins. pricing and more info...

 Crispino (Lettuce)  Crispino 
Straight head lettuce, no questions asked. Quarter it as salad for four, add dressing. Ozzie & Harriet salad of my youth is making a comeback, and this is the backbone for it. ‘Crispino’ is a uniform, unfussy “iceberg lettuce” for those who don’t really live in ideal iceberg country; dependably high yields of sweet, tight, white-hearted heads. pricing and more info...

 Gildenstern (Lettuce)  Gildenstern Farm Original Variety! OSSI Pledged Variety
A golden green sidekick to Rosencrantz, forming icy crisp heads that are suitable for individual salads.

 Head Cardinal (Lettuce)  Head Cardinal 
NEW FOR 2020! The French variety ‘Cardinale’ has been in our catalog over 15 years. We began noticing plants with a tendency to make enclosed heads rather than the expected open rosettes. After a few rounds of selection we are offering this red heading crisphead version of the original crispleaf Batavian type. ‘Head Cardinal’ makes a full sized head, larger... pricing and more info...

 Jack Ice (Lettuce)  Jack Ice 
A dark green crisp-leaf especially suited to salad mix, with extra fancy toothing of the leaf margins and an upright, open heading habit for easy harvest. A juicy sweet taste, good heft, and high resistance to downy mildew and tipburn make this a good base green for a mix. A find from our lettuce disease trials. Beautiful combo with 'Cardinale' and ... pricing and more info...

First cousin to 'Jester', but more extreme in its attributes. Forms a tighter head of deeply savoyed leaves with bold red splashes and large-toothed margins with coarse crenation.

If you like variation wi... pricing and more info...

 Red Ball Jets (Lettuce)  Red Ball Jets Farm Original Variety! OSSI Pledged Variety
When I was a young kid, everyone wore Red Ball Jets on their feet. Summer started with a new pair, and ended with your toes poking through the canvas. The Red Ball in the center of every sole could make you “run faster and jump higher”—perhaps the first claim for athletic enhancement via shoes. Looking down on a maturing bed of this new intensely red lettuce, its round, savoyed, ruffle-edged... pricing and more info...

 Red Iceberg (Lettuce)  Red Iceberg 
What a wonderful find—a truly red, fully heading crispleaf iceberg lettuce. Worked great for us from a spring planting, and held well in the field before bolting. Joelene brought this to our attention, saying she liked it as a young cut salad item. Crisp, sweet, and a unique shade of red as a baby leaf. Rated among the sweetest in ‘08 Philomath Botany Trials. pricing and more info...

 Reine d' Glaces (Lettuce)  Reine d' Glaces 
The “Queen of Ices” has been around for about 2 centuries, and she’s a beauty of a crisphead, with very ornately toothed green wrapper leaves blanching a crunchy white heart. Sounds like a queen. The hearts are a nice base for any salad, and she makes a fancy crisp cutting lettuce for mixes at a juvenile stage. Highly rated for horizontal resistance to downy mildew in our trials. This is one... pricing and more info...
