Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Summer Bibb Lettuce Seed
Summer Bibb Lettuce (43 days)
Lt. John B. Bibb served in the War of 1812, represented Logan County in the Kentucky House of Representatives and the state Senate from 1827 to 1834. Lt. Bibb was also an amateur horticulturist and developed the Bibb lettuce we know and love today. However, it wasn't offered commercially until 1935.
Summer bibb is a fabulous tasting lettuce that is crisp, clean and easy to grow. Bibb will hold longer in the heat than Buttercrunch Bibb, yet still grows quickly in our cool weather.
This lettuce has ornamental light green leaves that are dotted with 1/4" red spots. Crispy heads often self blanch in the center. A true farmers market variety and perfect for the home gardener.
