Eva's Burgundy Lettuce Seed (32-45 days)

 Approx. 200 seeds per pkg. 
Sustainably/Organically Grown

Fantastic burgundy lettuce that is superior in flavor to many others in its class.  A great color that adds to any salad. 

I got this seed a few years ago from Lisa Von Saunder.  She collects endangered seeds from Amish Pennsylvania German families in the area and tries to preserve them.  She says she collected this seed from an 89 year old neighbor..."Eva".  Thus the name and of course the color!

Very rare.  Once we are sold out we will not have anymore until next summer.

Eva's Burgundy is a fantastic lettuce for the cool nights of California.  Very bolt resistant in our our coastal weather here.  Many lettuces will start to turn bitter in flavor as the heat increases.  Eva's lettuce stays mild until the 3 weeks of upper 90 degree heat we can sometimes get.  Excellent fall lettuce as Eva's has a remarkable level of frost resistance for a lettuce.  Performed extremely well here and is highly recommended.

Planting Tips:

Sow directly into very fertile, loose soil.  Thin down to final spacing once plants are established.  For best results, plant in spring or fall.  Harvest outside leaves for a continual harvest.  For longer harvest, stagger plantings every 2-3 weeks.

Heat Tolerance:  If you are growing lettuce in the heat, plant them where they will get afternoon shade.  Lettuce is a spring and fall crop in really hot areas.

Harvest Tips: For a continual harvest, sow every 2-3 weeks a new crop if cutting full heads, otherwise harvesting outside leaves will encourage a longer harvest from individual plants.

Seeding Rate:

30,000 plants/acre, aproximately 2 oz.

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
