Alkindus Red Butterhead Lettuce Seedlings, strip of 6-7 heads
A strip of 6-7 lettuce seedlings.
A stunning dark red butterhead with a light green heart, this variety is perfect for eye catching appetizers to delight at any get-together! While it’s leaves are too delicate to withstand being cooked, it is absolutely perfect for delicious bowls or wraps, or you could add it to a juice or smoothie for a boost of vitamins. Plant your seedling as soon as you like! But if temperatures dip suddenly be sure to cover them with row cover or a tented sheet to keep your plants' leaves warm and protected, removing once warm temperatures return. And when you're ready to harvest your lettuce head, it’s best to do so in the morning, when the natural sugars in the plant are concentrated in the leaf.
