A tasty green and red-tinged heirloom that forms an attractive loose head, although usually used as a leaf lettuce. Also known as Lattuga Ubriacona, the wine-red flush may have inspired its Italian names, which translate as "drunken" lettuce. Very popular for its crisp texture and outstanding flavour, the ruffled, savoyed leaves add colourful flair to a salad. Excellent bolt resistance.
Sow direct where it is to grow or raise in trays of Yates® Black Magic® Seed Raising Mix. Transplant seedlings when 3-4cm high.
Plant in a well-drained, sunny position, adding Yates® Thrive® Natural Garden Lime and Yates® Thrive® Natural Blood & Bone to the soil before planting. Water regularly and apply fertiliser weekly. Make successive sowings every few weeks. Water at base of plant, rather than overhead, to minimise risk of disease. Protect from snails and slugs.
Great companion plant for beans, beets, carrots, cucumbers, onion, peas, radish and strawberries.
Store in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
