Lettuce, Saragossa (Organic)
Lactuca sativa. Green and Red Crisphead. 45-55 days.
A brilliant green and red crisphead lettuce. Exceptional heat resistance similar to Batavian types and the flavor is sweet and crisp even in the middle of summer. The last few years we have been trialing summer lettuces and Saragossa is one of our favorites. Selected to excel in outdoor production all season long from spring through fall. The compact heads are heavy without closing completely like an iceberg type, allowing for harvest at a range of sizes. Andrew picked up this variety from Bingenheimer Saatgut while on an Open Source Seed Initiative advocacy trip to Germany in 2016. Bred under biodynamic farming practices by Ulrike Behrendt with the assistance of Kultursaat, a biodynamic seed breeding foundation.
