This loosely formed romaine is crispy yet tender with medium green leaves mottled with red splashes. Bred by Frank Morton, it boasts of great Downy Mildew resistance and heat tolerance - it held up very well for us in this summer's heat. Pretty and practical. And tasty. Eat it with a dressing or vinaigrette -it holds up well to both. 60 days to maturity. This is an OSSI-pledged variety. Photo by Wild Garden Seeds.
Whether seeding into a pot or directly into the garden, be sure not to bury the seed too deep. Cover the seed lightly; approximately 1/8" with loose soil and pat down gently. Keep the soil consistently moist until the plants emerge. Being heat sensitive, lettuce will usually germinate best below 24 degrees Celsius.
