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.

 Balls Afire (Lettuce)  Balls Afire Farm Original Variety! OSSI Pledged Variety
NEW FOR 2024! The original working name for this project was “flaming tennis ball,” which captures pretty well the appearance as it stood out among hundreds of more staid heads. This is a small compact crisphead wrapped up in burgundy red leaves that are deeply dissected and crisped with tiny teeth. Maturing rosettes are densely pigmented and easily gathered as salad leaves. The mature head is densely convo... 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...

 Head Cardinal (Lettuce)  Head Cardinal 
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...

 Karen's Fave (Lettuce)  Karen's Fave Farm Original Variety! OSSI Pledged Variety
NEW FOR 2024! Karen is a lettuce’s harshest critic. Two years ago she asked me what this lettuce was... “It’s the exceptional family R, dear, why do you ask?” She said it was her favorite. That was all it took to label this dark red head with the bright green insides. Full size heads with an open habit that makes harvest easy by the leaf. Toothsome and crisp, each leaf is glossy and muscular from its 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...

 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...
