Merlot Leaf Lettuce
30 days baby, 60 days full head
Dark red color and makes this loose leaf lettuce stand out in the green salad crowd. Sow in early spring and every two weeks for a continuous harvest. Merlot will not make a great head so harvest individual leaves often. I like greens to be beautiful not only on my plate but more so in the garden. I grow lettuce for baby leaf harvest in clumps of different varieties so that they look like the salad I will eat while they are growing in the garden. Try it! It’s fun! My favorite new addition to the Island Greens mix!
