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

Organic Cal Sweet Lettuce
Organic Cal Sweet Lettuce Lactuca sativa
Packet contains 1/2 a gram, roughly 200 seeds
This outstanding crisphead (Great Lakes group) stays deliciously sweet and tender well into the June heat. The leaves are thick and blistered on the surface, with wavy and toothed margins. The color is a muted green. Cal Sweet has some resistance to tip burn and downy mildew. White seeded.
Cal Sweet was developed by Ferry-Morse Seed Co. in the 1970's, and doesn't seem to be available commercially anymore. There is some variation in the degree of head formation in this population, and we are working to select for more uniform heading. Nevertheless, this is a clear employee favorite for its flavor and robustness, and we want to make sure it doesn't disappear.
