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.

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: approx 500 seeds.
