Lettuce New Red Fire
With attractive dark red frills, and open leaves, an ideal lettuce for both the experienced and novice vegetable gardener, due to its tolerance to both heat and cold and is bolt resistant. It can be harvested whole, or is also suitable as a cut and come again variety, bringing a more unusual colour to the average salad bowl.
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.
