Orcas Lettuce: Orcas Lettuce is a mid-sized Manoa Leopard selection about 9” across at full size. It’s leaves are densely wrinkled or savoyed with short broad leaves, and it’s color is medium green with red spots. Frank Morton’s Wild Garden Seed is a treasure trove of interesting new lettuce varieties bred on his farm in Oregon, and this one has been adapted for Hawai’i.
