Description

Lettuce - Flame - Lactuca sativa

Hardy Annual Heirloom. This leaf lettuce is distinctly bright-red color throughout the leaves and stem. The broad, frilled leaves hold color well. Flame matures early and is slow to bolt. This variety was introduced in 1988 and is difficult to find.

Did You Know? Red leaf lettuce is rich in vitamin A.

Soil & Water: Lettuce likes full sun except in hot summer climates where it prefers some shade, especially in the afternoon. Add plenty of compost to the soil to encourage rapid growth. Water evenly and moderately to prevent bitterness.

Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 4 weeks before transplanting outside, or sow seed directly as soon as the soil is workable. Make successive plantings every 10-14 days for a continuous harvest. In mild climates, lettuce can be sown from spring through fall.

Harvesting & Storage: Begin harvesting outer leaves as soon as they are large enough and continue until a central stalk begins to form, which signals the end of the harvest period. You can also harvest the entire plant when it's mature but still young and crisp.

Reviews

Beautiful with delicate flavor

The seeds are finicky and decide when they want to sprout. I planted last September as our growing season for lettuce is winter and spring- they didn't sprout until January, but it was worth the wait. It's a very beautiful variety with a mild flavor. Exceptionally pretty mixed with oak leaf green lettuce and edible flowers. The more sun it get's the darker and more opaque the merlot hue becomes. The color is more of a burgundy to deep wine red or a burgundy variegated with green. It bolted very quickly though. I will grow this again and hope for better luck with a faster germination.
