A Saanich Organics favourite! Crispy green head encased by red-tinged, shiny, curled leaves. Great flavour.
Start in trays, seeding 5mm deep. Transplant 30-45cm apart for heads, closer for looseleaf, or direct-seed more densely in rows for baby greens. Sow April through August; stagger plantings for a continuous supply of lettuce. 7-15 days to germination, 30 days to baby lettuce, 50 days to lettuce heads.
