We all know and love HG's tomatoes and corn but did you know that the stand has delicious, field grown lettuces as well?

One of Brent's most prized accomplishments is he has grown this red lettuce with green spots shown above from a single seed of "super spotty" Double Density. This variety of lettuce was bred by Frank Morton just recently and Brent was intrigued when he first tried it.
From each crop of this lettuce, Brent saves seeds, over time he will have collected from several different variations within this crop to capture more of the diversity of this amazing lettuce. Double Density is crunchy with an amazing flavor and is in most of the lettuce mixes at the farmstand. You can see how gorgeous this lettuce is in the photo below.
