66 days — The heads of 'Parris Island Cos' lettuce are uniform in size, tall, erect, and are resistant to Mosaic virus. Their outer leaves are dark, gray-green with interiors that are pale-green to cream in color. It was named after the island of the same name off of the South Carolina coast.[1]

Bred by Clemson College's Agricultural Experiment Station, Charleston, South Carolina as a stabilized cross between USDA accession number 'PI 120965'[2] and 'Dark Green Cos'. It was released in 1951 by the Ferry-Morse Seed Company.[1] Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 500 to 600 seeds.
very reliable and delicious
This is our favorite lettuce from our garden last year. It was slow to bolt and produced well. We even had some strange weather last Spring and a very wet Summer with too little sun and this lettuce still did very well.

Hardy and Strong
I put this lettuce through the wringer and it held ground! After transplanting (a huge no no with lettuce), the plants were thriving and growing very healthily. We had a run in with some local deer that lopped a few leaves off them, and I didn't think they would recover. To my surprise they did! Cropped to the ground and they came back and formed gorgeous hearts like the others. Very nice quality and endured a hot summer without going to bolt!
