A wee red head lettuce that weights about 200 grams.
Early harvest means early color on your plate!
Can be planted quite close together: 25 x 25 cm and tighter.
Our suggestion: plant at half distances and harvest every second lettuce as loose-leaf rather than head lettuce.
Red Butterhead is intended for early cultivation outdoors or for overwintering. If overwintering, direct seed at the end of August or transplant in mid-October. Make sure that the top of the transplant’s soil plug is even with the soil itself. Salads will overwinter with about 8 true leaves. Snow provides the best protection. Hard frosts without snow cover can be dangerous. In this case, cover lettuces with thin remay (fleece) or protect with straw—but wait to do this until as late as possible, after Christmas is best.
