Lettuce, Brune Percherone (Organic)
Lactuca sativa. Red Blushed Butterhead. 60 days.
An apple green butterhead tinged with a red-pink blush. Early, big, heavy heads grow well in difficult conditions and are heat resistant. An old variety known in Europe since around 1907. Most recently preserved from extinction by the seed saving groups Kokopelli in France, and Pro Specie Rara in Switzerland. We found Brune Percherone with Pro Specie Rara during our 2007 Seed Ambassadors trip.
