Red Sails Lettuce Seeds
‘Red Sails’ lettuce is a newish lettuce variety that is quickly becoming a favorite. Very tasty when used as baby greens, Red Sails is ready to harvest after just 2 or 3 weeks and grows to a full head in just over 6 weeks. It is very heat tolerant – the soft buttery leaves will grow for quite some time in warm weather without getting bitter. The light green leaves with red-bronze tips make it a pretty little patio container variety.
