Gardeners' Notes:

This is truly a wonderful lettuce variety. It is now a staple in my garden and one of my favorite. If you harvest just the outer leaves, this variety will continue to grow and produce the entire season. It's a true beauty and I strongly encourage anyone to give it a try.

Another of my all-time favorites, Rouge Grenobloise has achieved 'staple' status in my gardens. A beautiful lettuce with varying shades of red, bronze, light and dartk green, and even some yellow. It also tolerates the Summer heat better than any lettuce I grow!
