Best Lettuce we've ever grown
Reviewed By: Kathi Michener (Belfair, WA)
We highly recommend this lettuce. It's the best lettuce we've ever grown and the best $2.25 we've ever spent. We've been cutting and eating this lettuce for 6+ weeks and it keeps coming back to cut more!!

Highly Recommended
Reviewed By: Beverly (Greeley, Colorado)
Very reliable variety of lettuce year after year. Both tasty & beautiful - nice to mix with Romaine for a colorful sald. I plant in partial shade in this climate and Red Sails produces well into the hot sunny summer days.
