Medium sized heads stay firm and solid even in hot weather.

70 days — 'Cimmaron', also being marketed by some vendors as 'Cimarron' or 'Cimmarron', is a Romaine/Cos type of lettuce. Its leaves are large (up to twelve inches), flat, bright green in color with a reddish-burgundy tinge, are crisp and quite flavorful. It also does well in the North, as well as in hot weather and is generally slow to bolt in the summer heat.

We have read some pretty creative histories about 'Cimmaron' lettuce including vendor stating that it dates back to the 1700s. These "histories" appear to be fabrications based on misinterpretation of fact. The documentation that we have found indicates that although there are historical varieties with similar descriptions, 'Cimmaron' was first introduced by the now defunct wholesale seed production company, Dorsing Seeds, Inc. of Nyssa, Oregon[1] in 1991.[1,2] Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 500 to 600 seeds.
Good Taste
I grew several varieties of lettuce in 2013. I tried this one because I wanted something that would grow a little longer as the temperatures got warmer and not bolt too quickly. I was pleased with this lettuce. I got a good yield. Not only did it taste great but it lasted longer than most of my other varieties of lettuce.I will plant this again.
