Though we offer many different varieties of lettuce, some deserve special recognition for having stood the test of time across the generations — not by chance, but because of outstanding flavor, reliability, and wide adaptability. We call these strains our heritage varieties because of their history and dependability as long-time favorites in the garden and on the farm.
