Lettuce Red Iceberg 'Derel' (Lactuca sativa) Vegetable Heirloom, 800-1000 Seeds

Stunning red iceberg lettuce variety that is highly popular for its beautiful look and juicy, crisp, sweet flavour that doesn't get bitter. This variety produces 600g, round, pretty heads that are red outside and light green inside. 25-28 days baby, 65-75 days mature. It's a cold tolerant variety, so for tropical/warm climates it's recommended to grow as cut-and-come-again baby greens. Can be sown every two weeks for continuous harvest. Easy and super fast growing, adding a wonderful crisp, juicy touch to salads, braising mixes, side dishes and more. Looks amazing as baby leaf, as well as when fully matured. Stays fresh for a long time after cutting, if kept refrigerated. 

Planting: Year round in tropical climates; in temperate climates plant in late spring-early summer, after last frost, when soil is at least 65°F (18°C).

Soil: Fertile, well drained soil, rich in organic matter.

Sowing Depth: .25 inches (.6 cm) deep.
