From your friends at Botanical Interests: Redina is a unique and beautiful dark-leafed lettuce with crisp sweet leaves. It will look as pretty in your garden as it is in a salad! The general coloration ranges from wine-red to dark magenta-burgundy. Some green can occur on inside leaves where sunlight doesn't reach. The best color is achieved in full sun with cool nights, and you will definitely get the most intense color when it is grown in full sun. Baby leaves can be harvested within just a few weeks after sowing. Major harvest begins at 38 days and can continue up to 60 days after sowing. This variety is slow to bolt and get tip burn compared to many other red-leafed varieties. Redina is a great choice for extending your lettuce season as well as adding exciting and healthful color to your salads!
