Garnet Rose Romaine Lettuce

Be one of the first to grow this extraordinary, garnet colored lettuce. The crinkled leaves are red right to the center of the 10" - 12" plant. So pretty, grow it as an ornamental as well as for its delicious flavor. Good container variety.

When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 2 to 4 weeks before average last frost, and successive sowings thereafter every 3 weeks until 2 weeks before the first fall frost. USDA zone 8 or warmer: also sow in fall for winter harvest.

When to start inside: 6 weeks before average last frost, and in summer when soil temperatures are too warm outside to germinate lettuce seed.

Harvesting: Individual leaves can be harvested anytime as desired. The whole plant can be sheared to 2" above ground level when plant is up to 6" tall; more leaves will be produced.
