1898 Nebraska Seed Co. Catalog says about Grand Rapids Lettuce....
"Grand Rapids Forcing: In the vicinity of Grand Rapids, Mich., this is the only variety they plant for forcing. It is an excellent sort."
1929 Steele Briggs Seed Co. Catalogs says about Grand Rapids Lettuce...
"An excellent variety for forcing, or outdoor planting, being quick of growth, and little liable to rot. The plant is upright and forms a loose head or cluster of large, bright green leaves slightly crimped and blistering and rather thin. As the leaves do not wilt quickly after cutting, it is a popular Lettuce for the market."
