Red Planet Lettuce Blend Seeds (Organic)

Flavorful Reds Blend

Introducing the Red Planet Lettuce Blend, a thoughtfully curated mix of lettuce varieties sourced from the Lactuca sativa species. This blend features well-recognized subspecies such as Red Romaine, Red Oak Leaf, and Red Butterhead Lettuce.

In terms of appearance, this lettuce blend is visually striking, showcasing an array of deep red and maroon leaves that create a vibrant contrast in both gardens and culinary presentations. It not only adds to the visual appeal of salads but also provides a dynamic mix of textures and flavors.

Concerning taste, the Red Planet Lettuce Blend offers a harmonious combination of flavors. Red Romaine contributes a mildly bitter edge, while Red Oak Leaf introduces sweetness and nuttiness. Red Butterhead adds a subtle buttery note. This flavor diversity allows for creative culinary applications.

When cultivating the Red Planet Lettuce Blend from seed, specific conditions are key to achieving optimal results. It thrives in well-drained, nutrient-rich soil with a pH range of 6.0 to 7.0. Plant the seeds in early spring or late summer, aligning with your local climate. Adequate spacing, consistent moisture, and partial to full sun exposure are essential for healthy growth.

Harvesting is straightforward. You can pluck individual leaves as needed for various dishes or trim outer leaves for continuous regrowth. This blend not only enhances your garden's visual appeal but also enriches your culinary creations with a diverse and flavorful addition.

Planting & Care

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.
