This beautiful almost 90% red/maroon lettuce is truly a spectacular gem in the garden.  Pointed leaves resembling the ears of a deer, this lettuce does not disappoint.  I was surprised at how sweet and tender the leaves stay even when it has been growing in the garden for a while.

Slow to bolt and gorgeous in a salad, you will want to try out this amazing nutty flavoured lettuce in your garden!

Lettuce is cool-season crop that grows well in the spring and fall in most regions. Lettuce seedlings will even tolerate a light frost. Temperatures between 45°F and 65°F are ideal. (Source: almanac)

Because lettuce grows quickly, the best approach is to plant a small amount at a time, staggering your plantings.
