LETTUCE ROUGE D'HIVER
The large, flat, broad leaves have a buttery texture, and vary in colour between green through bronze shades to red, the blush deepening with colder weather. An attractive 1800's cold-tolerant, French heirloom romaine lettuce, 'Cimarron'.
Sow seed on soil surface and barely cover. Do not allow seedbed to get really dry. Thin gradually, enjoying the thinnings in an early salad or two. In cooler climates lettuce may be grown straight through the summer, as well as spring and fall. Rich, moist soil is necessary. Plants may benefit from a few hours of afternoon shade in hottest summer weather.
