Lettuce, Hungarian Winter Pink (Organic)

Lactuca sativa. Red Butterhead. 60 days.

Winter hardy, light-red butterhead originating in Hungary. The 12” green heads are splashed with red-pink. Very tender and delicious. Quick to bolt in the heat but perfect for spring and fall rotations. When growing for market, we liked to plant a late rotation in September to produce dense, 6” mini-heads for harvest in December through January. We then harvested whole heads and broke them up into our salad mix (years before “Salanova” came out). It was a quick way to add color and bulk up salad mix in the dead of winter. Interior leaves maintain quality down to 20°F. Came to us via the Occidental Arts and Ecology Center (OAEC) in California.
