Black Seeded Simpson, organic seeds
Lactuca sativa var. crispa
Is an extremely fine perpetual lettuce and the earliest of all. The light-green, curled wavy leaves are very crispy and juicy. Simpson, which grows vigorously, shapes a loose head as fully grown, handles drought and heat and is grown from early spring to late autumn. It is slow to bloom and very much liked since 1850. A portion has about 400 seeds.
