Positive Krtka On May 23, 2013, Krtka from Lynchburg, VA wrote:

Very dark red romaine, almost black, reportedly grown for baby leaf lettuce, but we have allowed it to mature with beautiful and tasty results. Not bitter. Give it good soil and modest water and you'll have success. Worth growing for it's appearance alone. That it's edible is a bonus.

Neutral Farmerdill On Dec 5, 2007, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

Specially bred for baby leaf production, Annapolis' leaves are a very dark, nearly black, red and are significantly darker red than Red Triangle or Outredgeous. Scalloped leaf margins add body to salad mixes. Resistance to DM races 1-16, 19, 21 and 23.
