Lettuce- Red Romaine Head (Heirloom)

Lactuca sativa

Red Romaine starts off with green leaves that eventually turn a deep burgundy color, even more in cooler weather. A perfect addition to a mix salad, Red Romaine can be picked at as a cut-and-come-again leaf lettuce, or can be left to form a head (light picking of bigger leaves is allowed) but not both. The heads (if allowed to form) are thick enough to grill. Plants are slow to bolt (unless picked at) and grow best in full sun, but will tolerate partial shade and even appreciate it in spring in hot climates. 

Days to germination 3-10 days
Days to maturity 50-55 days
Life cycle annual
Plant time/Harvest Plant seeds outdoors any time if night temperatures are 70 or lower. Harvest late fall through mid-spring
Spacing 10-18 in.
Sun full sun in fall, winter and part shade in spring
Soil temperature 35-70 degrees F.
Optimum soil P.H 6.1-7.5
Height 10-20 in.
