description for "Lettuce: Lactuca Sativa, 'Red Sails'"

Lactuca Sativa 'Red Sails' is still the slowest bolting red leaf around, yet the brittle ribs do not recommend this one for commercial shipping. The attractive heads of 'Red Sails' have ruffled, fringed leaves of deep, burgundy over green. Nice and crisp, it retains its bitter-free taste for a long time. Planting depth: .25 inch. Days to germination: 2-15 days. 55 days to maturity.
