Merlot Lettuce

55 days. (Also known as “Galactic.”) Reputed to be absolutely the darkest red lettuce in existence, which should make it tops for anthocyanin (anti-oxidant) content as well! Leaf lettuce with wavy to frilly leaf margins and very crisp, waxy leaves! Excellent bolt resistance, and good cold tolerance for a late fall to winter crop. Recommended as a cutting type for baby greens production or cut-and-come-again harvesting. We feel, along with our friend William Woys Weaver, that this variety is destined to become a classic, and it certainly deserves it!

What are the pros? Pretty

What are the cons? Bolted Quickly

Review:

I planted this too late in the spring, we got some hundred degree weather in early May and it promptly bolted. I am not sure any lettuce variety would have done better under those circumstances but this one did not hold up. On the plus side, the plant is about as pretty as you can find. I will let it go to seed, then try again this fall.

What are the pros? Slow to bolt, gorgeous color

Review:

I've grown Merlot for 6 or 7 years and love the sweet, delicate taste and the gorgeous color. While it's slow to bolt (even in NC)it does best in cooler weather. Some years it's been a little slow to germinate, but once it gets going it does very well. You'll get darker color if you plant it someplace that gets a little shade in the warm part of the day. Great for cut-and-come-again.
