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? easy to grow

What are the cons? BItter

Review:

While this is easy to grow and is pretty, the looks are deceiving. This lettuce is unbelievably bitter. I realize this is supposed to be a compliment to a salad but wow, even a penny sized piece mixed with a salad Is hard to eat.

Review:

This lettuce is fantastic in the heat. I grow leafy greens in a tiny greenhouse with non circulating hydroponics (kratky method), and this lettuce is one of the few things I've tried in there that withstands the intense summer heat. Plus, my whole family loves the taste of it, including those who don't like lettuce. It grows incredibly fast in hydroponics too.

Review:

Amazing DWC performer. 38 days from seed to harvesting leaves. 6 days to second cut. No leaf tip burn, great taste, beautiful presentation! Outer leaves were 8" across, with rich reds and nice shape. I wish I could include photos!

Review:

What a show stopper! The color on this one is incredible. Looks gorgeous with orange segments, caramelized pecans, red onion and pomegranate seeds. We love the the crispness, while it is still tender and I enjoy the slight bitterness due to the coloring. I think it is a lettuce that stands up well to a warm salad, the type you use as a bed for caramelized squash, or cornmeal coated chicken with a heavier dressing.
