One of the most beautiful lettuces you can grow with bright green cupped leaves splashed with rosy-red, this butterhead type makes a visual and flavourful splash in the salad bowl. The succulent leaves are superb, buttery and mild, the loose heads grow to around 30cm across and can be harvested in about 55 days. This lovely heirloom came from a peasant family in Marburg, Yugoslavia (now Slovenia).
Sow seed on soil surface and barely cover. Do not allow seedbed to get really dry. Thin gradually. 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.
