This excellent dark oak-leaf variety was developed in Holland and has some of the most attractive frilly dark red-coloured leaves we have ever seen on a lettuce. Mascara retains its colour through the hottest part of the summer and is slow to bolt and sets the standard in its class.
Sow seed on soil surface and barely cover and do not allow the seed bed 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 autumn. Rich, moist soil is necessary whilst plants may benefit from a few hours of afternoon shade in hottest summer weather.
