Lettuce- Green Amish Deer Tongue (Heirloom)
The Green Amish Deer Tongue (also known as Matchless) is a popular Amish loose leaf heirloom, with long triangular leaves and a sharp, robust flavor. Green Deer Tongue is moderately heat tolerant which makes it a bit less prone to bolting, but I would still grow this one when it's cool to cold outside.
