Description

Also known as “French Crisp,” this lettuce is a favorite for summer salads. The heads form dense whorls of impressively crisp leaves with shiny red edges and green, tender hearts. Holds well in the summer heat and resists downy mildew and lettuce mosaic virus. So bolt resistant it was difficult to save the seed!
