What’s not to like? The leaves of this boldly colored looseleaf lettuce are flavorful, sweet, crisp, and tender. Large, abundant leaves have frilly edges and grow on plants that reached 9-11″” tall and 1′ wide at Seed Savers Exchange’s Heritage Farm in 2018 . Plants do well in summer heat and bear leaves that are light yellow-green in the center and dark red/purple toward the edges. SSE member Louis Van Deven received this variety in 1988 from a gardener in Neubrandenburg, Germany. 35-42 days.
Instructions – Sow continuously for a constant supply of lettuce. Best grown in cooler weather. Plant in full sun or partial shade.
