Lettuce, Mikola (Organic)
Lactuca sativa. Red Butterhead. 50 days.
A medium-sized, dark-red butterhead that stands out as one of our best varieties. Easy to grow and tolerant of summer heat – it was slow to bolt in our summer lettuce trial which included over 60 varieties. Great color, overall appearance and succulent texture. A reliable variety for gardens and market farms, Mikola was a commercial standard for organic and biodynamic farms for decades but it recently disappeared. We want to thank Turtle Tree Seeds for preventing its disappearance and for turning us on to this variety.
