Lactuca sativa

This is a 'new to us' lettuce that we grew for seed in 2018. I have to admit that the name sucked us in. Bred by Frank Morton of Wild Garden Seed and pledged to the Open Source Seed Initiative, this variety is all that I want in a lettuce. I loved the color and sweet juicy hearts and leaf ribs. 

Described here by Wild Garden Seed, "Dark red splashes are in high contrast over dark green ruffled leaves, wrapped into a tight upright head, with that bone crusher romaine crunch. The blushed hearts are pink as rose petals. This is a unique and beautiful romaine fountain of lettuce."

These white Japanese turnips are popping up in farmer's markets and are incredibly popular. They have very little spice and can be eaten raw straight from the garden. They are also wonderful sliced in salads or pickled. Last season we trialed three open pollinated varieties against the market standard hybrid Hakerei. We found the Tokyo Market to be virtually identical. The greens can be eaten as well! Truly one of my favorite garden foods!
