Rouge d'Hiver Lettuce is an ever popular French heirloom variety that features handsome compact bronze-red leaves on 12" inch loosely folded upright heads. Well regarded for its rich, buttery flavor and consistent crisp texture, Rouge d'Hiver translates to "Red Winter," which is well fitting because this variety has excellent cold tolerance. Broad color rich leaves make this a desired variety for baby greens mixes to add color contrast and texture. Best suited for fall and spring crop rotations, this attractive variety is a fabulous addition to keep fresh market growers' shoulder season offerings fresh and visually appealing. 30 days for baby-leaf / 60 days for full heads. Packet: approx. 500 seeds.
