Lactuca sativa

Marvel of Four Seasons Lettuce is a French Heirloom variety introduced in 1885, also known as Merville de Quatre Saison or Continuity.  

It is a butterhead variety that produces lovely red-pink outer leaves with a folded green centre.  The leaves are very tender and sweet and are exceptional in salad mixes.

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 - 60 days.

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