Italian Lollo Rosso is a flavorful cut-and come again loose-leaf lettuce. It's also grown as baby leaf variety to include in many salad mixes and it’s popular among gardeners because of its resistance against extreme temperatures. Favored for its texture, color, and curly edges. 1/2g ~ 500 seeds.

Plant seeds directly into the garden starting 4 weeks before average last frost date or as soon as the soil can be worked. You can also start seeds indoors 2-4 weeks before transplanting. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 50-70 degrees. Lettuce seed does not germinate well if soil temperature is above 80 degrees. Resume planting in late summer for a fall harvest. Lettuce is cold tolerant and will tolerate light to moderate frosts. Succession plantings every at 2 weeks intervals will provide a steady supply.
