Lettuce, Solar Flare

100% of 100

Dr. William Woys Weaver created this lettuce from a 1600s variety called Spotted Aleppo, amplifying the heirloom’s red spots and transforming it into this showy semi-romaine summer lettuce splashed with many shades of fiery color. The 8 to 10 inch heads are more vertical than spreading, but for best results and consistent color, plant each about 14 inches apart. Slow to bolt, the lightly ruffled leaves remain tender throughout the summer. It is a great source of antioxidants.
