Red summer crisp with good flavour! Shiny, slightly puckered, red-tinged leaves form a whorled, conical head with a crispy, green heart. Ideal for spring and summer plantings. Tolerant to bolting, tip burn, and bottom rot. High resistance to downy mildew.
Seed outdoors as soon as weather and soil conditions permit. Cover seed lightly with soil, 6 to 7 seeds per 30 cm (1 ft) of row. Average garden soil and a sunny location will produce loads of lettuce. Thin to 20 cm (8 in) apart when 5 cm (2 in) high. Successive seeding every 10 to 14 days will provide fresh lettuce all summer long. Lettuce may also be planted in the flower garden as a contrast plant.
