Abundant, crinkly, light green leaves with a crisp texture make this one of the most popular loose-leaf variety.  The mild, delicate flavor is best if timed to mature during cool weather because it matures quickly it can be grown later in the Spring than most varieties.  Direct sow seed as soon as soil can be worked in Spring.  Repeat at two week intervals until late Spring.  Sow again in late Summer and Fall.  Water regularly and fertilize when 3" tall.  Provide light shade for late Spring and Summer sowings.  Harvest: Pick leaves anytime as needed but before they yellow or reach the size of your hand or cut entire plant.  Rich in fiber and potassium with moderate amount of Vitamin A
