'Drunken Woman Frizzy Headed'

Lettuce 'Drunken Woman Frizzy Headed'

While we won't even venture to hypothesize where the ''drunken woman'' part of the name comes from, the ''frizzy headed'' portion makes much more sense since this unique butterhead forms a savoy-type head. Robust 8” plants have mint green leaves that are tinged in mahogany red. What's more intriguing is that it is apparently one of the last lettuce varieties to bolt when the weather heats up in the Spring. Plant 6” apart in a well-fertilized bed or a container or plant closer & thin later. You can harvest by pulling/cutting the entire plant or pull off outer leaves as needed.
