- Deepest wine red, Merlot Lettuce takes red lettuce to an entirely new level.
- The leaves are deeply frilled and waved, forming tender-crisp rather open, upright Batavian-like heads.
- Holds up remarkably well to summer heat.
Planting Directions: Sow seed ¼” deep in well prepared soil that has been amended with a general garden fertilizer or rich compost when soil temperatures are between 40°-80°. Sow indoors 4 weeks before transplanting outdoors. Plant in early spring and again in fall. When young plants are well established begin thinning. The plants should stand 6” apart. Plant every few weeks as long as weather is cool for a continuous supply. Grow lettuce quickly for a crisp leaf. Keep the soil moderately moist during the entire growing season.
