Also called Sugar Loaf. Combines the bitterness of chicory with an attractive sweetness. The head, resembling a cos-lettuce, is slightly screwed, 30-40 cm tall, light green with white interior. It is juicy and unusually mild. Sugar Loaf is a steady, easily grown, delicious lettuce, becoming extra tasty when harvested in the autumn after some frost. A portion contains about 300 seeds.
