Deer Tongue Red Lettuce is a prized heirloom variety for its rich mahogany-red color and sweet nutty flavor. The elongated triangular leaves fade in color in an ombre effect and showcase a distinct green spine in a looseleaf upright head. Visually a stellar choice for the discerning gourmet who appreciates textural interest and color depth as well as a complex flavor profile in their salad mixes. The distinctive growth habit of Deer Tongue Red allows single leaf harvesting or the whole head. Easy to grow, high yielding and slow to bolt, this is a reliable heritage favorite for new and seasoned growers. 45 days. Packet: 500 seeds.
