Quickly maturing red heads with bright green hearts that are sweet, mild, and smooth. We fancy ourselves connoisseurs of butterhead lettuces and Pirat is our favorite for spring and early summer. We can’t keep up with market demand, which is a problem we farmers don’t mind at all. Resistant to mildew, white mold and tip burn.
