New Edible for 2015: Sandy Lettuce

We don’t know why Seeds By Design opted to give their baby leaf lettuce introductions women’s names, but we do know that their new oak leaf lettuce, Sandy, is a winner—literally.

All-America Selections tapped Sandy for 2015, making it the first winning lettuce since 1985. Uniformly shaped and exceptionally disease resistant, Sandy offers frilly sweet-tasting leaves that don’t turn bitter with heat stress.
