After multiple years of green leaf lettuce trialing, we finally found a variety (thanks Adaptive Seeds!) that met our expectations for vigor, beauty, flavor, and ability to produce seed in our region. Everyone, meet Snowflake, a fast-growing, frilly, lime green, bolt-resistant, crispy, mild leaf lettuce suitable for most of the growing season with the small exception of summer’s peak.

Latin name: Lactuca sativa

All of our seed is Non-GMO and Certified Organic by Washington State Department of Agriculture. We grow the majority of our varieties here at Deep Harvest Farm on Whidbey Island while we purchase the rest from other small, organic Northwest seed growers. Finally, all of our offerings are open-pollinated (OP) so that you too can save and share seed from these plants!
