A cross of ‘Jester’ X ‘Fine Cut Oak’ in the 3rd generation, making for an extremely diverse collection of plant forms. One of the goals is a “frisée form” lettuce, and there is a lot of this to choose from in this generation. On the “whole leaf” end of the genetic spectrum are some miniature heads comprised of small leaves with moss-frilled margins. Between these extremes are endless variations on leaf dissection and head size, color and texture. Some of these grow and bolt quickly, others were resistant to making seed at all.
