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
Our friends at Seed Ambassadors say... "similar to Bunyards Matchless and sherwood with more compact and open growth, slightly frilled leaf margins, dark green crunchy leaves with bronze tips, excellent sweet flavor, Very cold hardy, needing little protection to overwinter and grows well in the summer. Won an award of merit from the Royal Horticultural Society in 1923, A British heirloom (possibly originating in the US). Originally by the name of "Goldring's Bath Cos" from Heritage Seed Library, UK."
California Grown Seed Brown Goldring lettuce did well in our cool fog filled nights on the West Coast. It makes sense this British heirloom lettuce would succeed in similar conditions.
