70 days — 'Cimmaron', also being marketed by some vendors as 'Cimarron' or 'Cimmarron', is a Romaine/Cos type of lettuce. Its leaves are large (up to twelve inches), flat, bright green in color with a reddish-burgundy tinge, are crisp and quite flavorful. It also does well in the North, as well as in hot weather and is generally slow to bolt in the summer heat.

We have read some pretty creative histories about 'Cimmaron' lettuce including vendor stating that it dates back to the 1700s. These "histories" appear to be fabrications based on misinterpretation of fact. The documentation that we have found indicates that although there are historical varieties with similar descriptions, 'Cimmaron' was first introduced by the now defunct wholesale seed production company, Dorsing Seeds, Inc. of Nyssa, Oregon[1] in 1991.[1,2] Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 500 to 600 seeds.
