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

There is a variation in varieties from non-organic and organic.
I purchased a package of these seeds (4oz?) several years ago (it's 2020 now, I think I bought them in 2016 or 17), kept them in the fridge. Started growing them again this winter in a small hydroponic system in my garden window in jiffy pots. To my amazement, they still have a near-100% germination rate! Lettuces are basically grasses and grasses are very tough seeds capable of living dormant for years in harsh conditions before they sprout.
I soak the Jiffy pot to expand it, then just dip the top into the seeds, about a dozen adhere to the top, then I cover in plastic wrap until they pop which is usually 3 days or so. They grow very quickly into a delicious variety of greens. I start 6 every 2 weeks and I always have more greens than I need. A lot of them get stir-fried, mixed into fried rice, pasta, etc. There are even multi-colored Swiss chard seeds in my mix, I've extracted them individually and grown them into full sized plants in my garden. Anyway, the value here is extraordinary. Buy a package and keep them in the fridge, you'll be growing fresh greens for many years.
