A real standout in both the garden and in your salad bowl. Harvest when leaves are small to add a brilliant colour to spring salads. Outrageous Red is slow to bolt in the summer heat and keeps its mild, non-bitter flavour. The colour fades in hot weather but it stands up well. Sow in early spring and then again in August to have this lively leag lettuce available all summer. Cut leaves 2-3 cm above the stem base to allow the plant to sprout new leaves. If the plant starts to bolt remove the plant as leaves become bitter.
