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."
