Description

A new bronze-red Cos variety which we grew both as a hearting lettuce and picking just its outer leaves as a cut-and-come-again. It struggled when it got properly frosty but gave us many weeks of delicious and pretty salad bowls all through autumn.

Care Tips

Lettuces need plenty of water, but not too much sun. Hot weather increases the likelihood of them going to seed.
