Description
Winter Density
65 days — 'Winter Density' is kind of an interesting variety in that some would categorize it as a Romaine-type and some a Bibb-type.  It basically is a tall buttercrunch. The heads are dark-green, heavy and compact reaching eight ten inches in height and across.

'Winter Density' is slow to bolt in the heat and is tolerant of some frost which makes it suitable for growing in succession plantings through the gardening year.  It is an older English variety, also popular in France and known as 'Craquante D'Avignon'.

Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 500 to 600 seeds.

Oh So Tender!
This is the first time I have ever grown lettuce and what a difference from store bought! We planted late in the season, about April 20, and it began bolting about July 7 because of a series of days in the 90's. We picked the outer leaves at first for our salads then finally cut the entire head. This variety is almost melt in the mouth tender and very tasty! I will plant again in late summer for a fall/winter crop and will update my review for how well it grows then.

awesome lettuce
I directly sowed this seed into raised beds inside a Hoop House the first Week of October 2012. As of late January 2013, this lettuce is doing amazingly well and we've had plenty of freezing night temperatures. I would agree with the other poster's comments about this lettuce. No problems with pests or disease. Very tasty in salads and sandwiches.

Tasty and so easy to grow.
A wonderful Lettuce! It is tasty and so easy to grow. I've been harvesting leaves from each plant for a few weeks now and the plants are still going strong! No pest or disease problems.

Good for winter garden
Planted this lettuce in the fall and harvested in the spring. Very resilient to cold conditions. Great in salads!
