Plant Information
Popular since the days of the Pioneers, Red Deer Tongue leaf lettuce is a rugged, reliable variety that you'll love having in your garden. Not only because it's simple to sow and quick to grow, but because it's so flavorful and beautiful too. Its symmetrical heads grow to 7-8 inches in diameter and take on a pinwheel shape, with pointed, red-green leaves growing out from the center and then arcing slightly into a spiral. The leaves have crinkly edges and are an eye-catching red-green in color, so they're wonderful at dressing up your traditional green salads. And their tender texture and sweet, nutty taste mean they add a lot of flavor too.
