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. 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.
