All The Year Round
(Butterhead-type)

70 days — Also sold as 'All Year Round', the medium sized heads stay firm and solid even in hot weather. As the name implies, this variety can be sown in most locations from about March through August for a nearly "year-round" harvest periods. It does well in both hot and cooler locations.

This is another very old variety whose history has proven difficult to document. Searching our ever-growing archive of 70,000-plus seed catalogs, journals, bulletins and books, the oldest reference we could find was its introduction by James J. H. Gregory in 1876.[1] They did not explicitly claim to be its creator, nor did they mention its origin but W. W. Tracy, Jr. stated that it was, "...of foreign origin."[2] He also confirmed 1876 as being the year that it was first listed by American seedsmen. Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 500 to 600 seeds.
