Red & Green Romaines Caesar Duo Lettuce Seed Mix

Red & Green Romaines Caesar Duo Lettuce Seed Mix

Colorful Crunchy Duo

The Garden Red & Green Romaines Caesar Duo, a distinctive cultivar, is a blend of two romaine lettuce varieties cherished for their flavor and visual appeal. Romaine lettuce, scientifically known as Lactuca sativa, originated in the Mediterranean region and has become a staple in various cuisines worldwide.

This Caesar Duo presents an alluring aesthetic with a blend of dark red and vibrant green leaves. The contrast between the colors creates an eye-catching visual in gardens or containers, adding ornamental value to its culinary appeal.

In terms of taste, both red and green romaine lettuce varieties offer a mild, slightly sweet flavor with a crisp texture. The combination of these two varieties provides a delightful balance of flavors, enhancing salads and various dishes with their unique taste and appealing appearance.

Cultivating the Garden Red & Green Romaines Caesar Duo from seed requires specific growing conditions. These lettuce varieties thrive in moderate climates with well-draining, fertile soil and prefer cooler temperatures for optimal growth. Planting from seed involves sowing them directly in the garden or containers, placing seeds about a quarter-inch deep and spacing them 8-12 inches apart.

Consistent moisture is crucial during germination and growth. Adequate sunlight, at least 6 hours daily, supports healthy leaf development and vibrant coloration. As lettuce prefers cooler conditions, providing shade during hot periods prevents premature bolting and bitterness in the leaves.

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.
