50-60 days.  We love heat tolerant lettuces!  We love seed varieties named for the family matriarch who stewarded them!  Aunt Mae's Bibb lettuce is both!  This is butterhead with bright green leaves that was donated to the Seed Savers Exchange by Nestor Keen, who got the seeds from his Aunt Mae in 1937.
