Lettuce, Black-Seeded Simpson

Even after 150 years it's one of the most tender leaf lettuces.

Customer Favorite!

Hugely popular for over 150 years, it's one of the most tender and delicately flavored leaf lettuces ever bred. The ruffled leaves are large with an appealing green color. Simpson is well adapted to a wide range of climates and is still the best for early spring sowing.
