Leaf-type Lettuce

50 to 70 days — The leaves are a beautiful magenta color with a light green base, deeply curled with a very mild flavor. 'Lollo Rosso' is an interesting choice to use to add color contrast to garden salads. See also, 'Lollo Bionda' lettuce. It can be sown in spring or fall in most areas and is a "cut and come again" type. Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 500 to 600 seeds.

Planting Instructions: Lettuce and other greens thrive in cool spring and fall weather (50° F to 60° F). A few greens can handle summer heat, but most of them prefer the cooler temperatures of spring and fall. Most lettuce and greens can withstand occasional exposure to light frost but if very cold weather is coming, protect your plants with a frost cover.

Sowing: Prepare the seedbed outdoors using a hard tined rake, smoothening out the soil. Lightly sow and just barely cover the seeds with soil. Keep soil moist until germination is achieved. You can also start seeds indoors by sowing into seed starting trays using fresh new seed starting potting mix into clean seed starting trays. Just barely cover the seeds and keep well watered until they sprout. Harden off and transplant into the garden after about 3 weeks.
