Lactuca sativa

The Lollo Rosso Lettuce is a loose-leaf variety producing frilly red tipped leaves. It is heat tolerant and looks great in mixed salads.  Loose leaf lettuces are great as 'cut and come again', as you can just pick leaves as required.

Sow seed approx. 3mm deep, best grown at cooler times of the year.  Direct sow or sow into seedling trays for later transplanting. Cover seed lightly to approx. 3mm deep as lettuce needs light to germinate, firm down and keep moist.  Germination approx. 7 - 14 days.  Part or full sun, moist well drained (non acidic) soil.  Matures in approx. 50 - 65 days.

To reduce the risk of disease; do not overhead water, and avoid watering in the heat of the day.
