Impressive lettuce from Frank Morton is the result of a cross between Reine de Glaces, Merlot and Flashy Troutback. Crisp little heads of flashy, red spackled, semi-savoyed leaves are crunchy and juicy. There is still variation in this strain— some heads have more red, some more green but all are perfectly proportioned for the salad plate. Harvest this crispleaf type lettuce as a loose open head or leave it to become a semi-tight, pink-hearted blanched head. Late to bolt. What more could you want in a lettuce.
