- This is a quote from the 1947 Schell's Seed Company catalog about White Boston lettuce:
- "Very uniform, solid heads. Color light green, with beautiful buttery yellow center, deliciously tender and tasty. Schell's White Boston is an early lettuce, easy to grow. We urge all of you who specialize in growing fancy quality head lettuce, whether an acre or fity acres, get acquainted with our strain of White Boston. It will prove a money-maker for you. For the home garden it is very desirable quality head lettuce. We sell many thousands of pounds of it."
