“Shhhhhh! Don’t tell anyone, but this mix contains new stuff that may soon be named and released. We can’t tell you what it is exactly, but there are new lines (with variations) in here. Reds, greens, brights, darks, splashes, blushes, crisps, butters, leafs, heads, and tongues. Soon to be famous? You might be the first to find out. This year’s secret stuff has some lotus-like lettuce that look like bloodstone, or just bloody red. There are crisphead cousins of Falstaff, a pool of green gems with Hawaiian genes, and an unlikely combination of island hearts and Deer Tongue in camo dress. If this is hard to comprehend, that’s because it’s a secret! Note: This is a new mix for 2016. You can still purchase the classic Morton’s Secret Lettuce Mix from previous years (original mix, 2014 Mix, 2015 Mix) Farm Original Variety!”
