This All-American Selections winner produces a deliciously flavored, loose-leaf head that is attractively colored throughout, with splashes of red that make an attractive, tasty addition to salads. Plants are slow to bolt to seed, and because they mature quickly they can be grown later in the spring than most varieties. Grows well in containers.
