It wasn't until I cut a head of this variety in half that I truly understood its name. The hearts are astonishingly red and soooo succulent. Hearts Aflame has an upright romaine habit and tender savoyed green leaves with red splotches. It was bred by Frank Morton of Wild Garden Seed and pledged to the Open Source Seed Initiative. He selected it for "internal redness in a flaming pattern on long blanched hearts."
