Lactuca sativa acephala

Specialty from Italy, with a pleasant strong taste, slightly bitter and nutty. Best as a complement to other lettuces. Snails don't like this lettuce! Attractive frilly red & green leaves add color and texture to a salad, sandwich or garnish. The loose heads can be harvested whole or you can harvest leaf by leaf towards the center of the plant. Lollo Rosso blooms late and has a long harvest period. Place in a sunny, protected location in good, nutritious soil. Source of vitamins A and C, folate, fiber, antioxidants, and iron.

Trivia: believed by some to be cultivated since the ancient Egyptians as an aphrodisiac and medicinal remedy.

Direct sowing: Early, as soon as the soil can be cultivated - July. Water before sowing and keep moist during germination. Lettuce seeds germinate poorly in high heat, not above +20°C.
