Certified Organic Seed
Tight head of lettuce that can withstand the heat.
This lovely lettuce is a delightful main ingredient in summer salads. It is red-tinged, with frilly outer leaves and a dense, succulent, ribbed inner core. Holds well in the field in summer heat, resisting turning bitter and bolting better than most varieties.

Sow indoors beginning 8-10 weeks before last frost, or direct sow beginning about 4 weeks before last frost. Harvest late spring and summer sowings promptly to beat bolting. Continue sowing until about 2 weeks before first fall frost. Lettuce likes steady (but not excessive) moisture and can become prematurely bitter during dry spells; keep irrigated for best-tasting leaves.
