Product Overview

Lactuca sativa

A favorite known for pretty red color, crisp leaves, good flavor, and tolerance to cold and heat. Also makes a beautiful baby green.

This wonderful French heirloom from the 1800s has been pleasing gardeners with its rich, buttery flavor for more than a century. Compact, 12" tall head with a tender green heart surrounded by bronze-red leaves. The name fittingly translates to "Red Winter", as it is cold tolerant and resists tip burn. Ideal for fall planting.

Variety Info
