Queen of Hearts
Such a beauty. Such crunch. Such flavour. Another one of those lettuces that you cut in half and plate up for individual salads. This one makes the salad look like a painting on the plate. Deep red outer leaves give way to ruffled bright green leaves which surround a crunchy pinkish centre. The midrib is sweet and crunchy too. Our friends at Uprising Seeds crossed a favourite looseleaf with an heirloom iceberg and this is the result. They describe it as a mini-butter-romaine and we all owe them a huge thank you.
