A beautiful tender and sweet leaf lettuce with bright green leaves that are tipped in purple. This pre-1885 variety was referred to by Vilmorin as "Red Celtuce" as it is sometimes used for the bolting stem which is tender and light pink.

What are the pros?
What are the cons?
I have been growing this type for about 6 years. It is an ancient lettuce from Krakow (hence the name) that gets really really big and is slow to get bitter. The large Romain shaped leaves are a beautiful green going to deep purple. Grows well in both warm and cold conditions and does a great job of self sowing if you let plants go to seed. An asset to any lettuce garden

This variety germinated best out of the five other varieties i grew. Crunchy, green & red, somewhat reminds me of Romain lettuce. Slightly bitter. Middle of December now, and still growing stong here in SW Louisiana.
