Lettuce, Cindy (Organic)
Lactuca sativa. Green Butterhead. 55 days.
Large, light-green butterhead that produces high quality heads with a delicate buttery texture and sweet, nutty taste. Bred for spring or summer production with good bolt resistance. This excellent variety outperformed every other lettuce we planted in our fall trial of 20 varieties. European commercial variety dropped from the EU Common Catalog. Saved from extinction by Christina Henatsch, a biodynamic plant breeder in Germany, who gave it to us on our 2007 Seed Ambassadors Project trip.
