Details

With a mild, bitter-free flavor, Red Sails has 6 times the amount of vitamin A and 3 times the amount of vitamin C as typical supermarket lettuce. It has the ability to grow year round, so you can harvest early for baby leaf lettuce or wait until full maturity. Its leaves are sweet, large, crumpled and crinkly, ruffled with a bronze-red color and deeply lobed leaves spanning up to 10" across. It's slow to bolt, which means it won't prematurely create flowering stems that divert nutrients away from the lettuce. An All-America selections winner.
