Tall Treviso type. Deep maroon 21.5 cm (8.5 in) tall heads with very attractive contrasting white ribs with a juicy crunch for a beautiful colour and texture providing contrast and eye appeal in salad mixes. Suitable for all growing seasons.
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. May also be planted in the flower garden as a contrast plant.
