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
This is tasty and dependable lettuce. It looks more like a romaine style lettuce than is shown in the pictures. It does not grow in a head-shaped bunch, you can just snip the leaves. While it's very hot this June, and my spinach and Black Seeded Simpson have basically bolted, the Jericho is still doing fine. I like to snip the outer leaves near the base. We haven't tried "mowing" off the top half as I've seen done with leaf lettuce. It germinated well. Great flavor. Not as dark green as I hoped, but a lovely medium green that you'd choose from the produce section if you were buying Romaine.
Because this is "Iraeli" lettuce, I thought it would be stronger in the heat. It's doing as well as the others, though, so it is still fine.
