Lolla Rossa Darky Lettuce Seed (72 days)
Fantastic magenta leaves with frilled edges that have a wonderfully mild flavor.  Makes a colorful salad or garnish.

Plant rows along your paths or driveway for a real edible show stopper.

Lolla Rosa Darky forms 7" looseleaf heads and is slow to bolt. 

This is a true cut and come again variety.  You may cut the whole plant to about 2"s and it will regrow providing another crop!

The color and flavor of Lolla Rosso Darky make it a sure seller at farmers markets.  Many market growers sell it at gourmet eateries who can't get enough of it.

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.
