Red Sail Lettuce | Ecologically grown Lactuca sativa | Annual | Open Pollinated | Heirloom
Crinkled leaves that have a red tint. Very slow to bolt and holds in fields after maturing.
Planting tip: Sow seed directly outside as soon as the soil can be worked. One can also start plant indoors 3-4 weeks ahead of planting time. Most lettuce won’t germinate well above 25°C except few heat-tolerant varieties.
Harvesting tip: Harvest at any stage but flavor is best in fall after a few cold nights.
Storage tip: Can be stored in sand in or in a root cellar at about 1-2°C.
