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

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."
