Lettuce, Brown Goldring (Organic)

Lactuca sativa. Bronze Romaine. 30 days baby; 55 full.

Similar to Bunyards Matchless with more compact growth, slightly frilled leaf margins and dark green, crunchy leaves with bronze tips. Excellent sweet flavor. Plant breeder and author, Carol Deppe, says it has the best flavor of any lettuce she’s ever tasted. (!!!) Very cold hardy, needing little protection to overwinter. Grows fairly well in the summer, too. A British heirloom originally by the name of “Goldring’s Bath Cos,” it won an award of merit from the Royal Horticultural Society in 1923. The Henry Doubleday Research Association found it to have three times the Vitamin C as other lettuces. We sourced this variety from the Heritage Seed Library in England. Aka, Crispy Crunchy Green-Gold.

Geographical Origin

Sow indoors in flats with good potting soil year-round. Transplant into the garden 3-4 weeks after sprouting at 3″ spacing for leaf, 12″ for heads. Alternatively, direct sow March through September. In our area, lettuce can go through winter if protected. Succession sow for continual harvest.

Seed Saving

Collect seeds when flowers are downy like dandelions. Cut seed heads and place upside down in a bag to dry for a few days. Knock seed heads against side of bucket or tote, rub downy fluff off seeds. Winnow and screen to clean.

    Where did you grow this variety? Oregon

    I obtained these seeds from a seed exchange. They were tasty and kept growing all summer long both in a greenhouse, which was usually 85 degrees in the daytime, and outside. I plan to make them a permanent crop from now on!
