NEW! Quite possibly the reddest lettuce variety known! Harvest as a leaf lettuce or allow to grow until the loose, Romaine-type heads develop"either way, it lends an "outrage" of red to salads or sandwiches. So pretty in the garden, too! Another Frank Morton selection.

An Old World crop that requires cooler temperatures to grow really well. Plants may benefit from a few hours of afternoon shade in hottest summer weather. Sow seed on soil surface and rake in lightly or otherwise barely cover, but not too deeply. Do not allow seedbed to get dry. Thin gradually, enjoying the thinnings in an early salad or two.
