Lactuca sativa var. crispa
We highly recommend this “head” lettuce. We are proud to maintain this old heirloom variety. It is a dark red lattughino with hazy green flares. Not only does it liven up the aesthetics of the salad bowl, but the remarkably crisp midrib gives substance for a hearty salad.

For picking leaf lettuce, sow from mid-March with follow-up crops in the beginning of September with rows 15–20 cm apart. You can harvest 2–3 times per planting. For head lettuce, sow in March into seedling trays. Transplant at the 3- to 5-leaf stage into the open field at a distance of 30 ✕ 30 cm. The loose heads will develop. Salad connoisseurs particularly enjoy this crop. Our varieties are especially suited for gourmet food aficionados.
