A perfect indoor lettuce, Slo-Bolt
The above photo is Slobolt lettuce, which is quickly becoming my favorite variety for growing indoors under lights.
The description from the seed vendor reads as follows:
48 days. . Plant produces very flavorful lettuce even in hot weather! This is a very slow bolting variety. The outer leaves may be picked off as it grows. It has a delightful crispness and mild flavor. For use in greenhouse growing and outdoor planting.
I might add that it germinates quickly, and really thrives when grown hydroponically.
