Lettuce, Unicum (Organic)
Lactuca sativa. Speckled Crisphead. 55 days.
Unlike the bitter Hungarian alcohol with the same name, Unicum lettuce will not grow hair on your chest. The name, which means “specialty” in Latin, is definitely appropriate for this wonderful lettuce. Large, crisp, green heads are slow to bolt and heat resistant. Leaves are bright green with some red speckles. Great flavor and texture. Seed stock came to us originally via Occidental Arts and Ecology Center in Northern California.
