description for "Lettuce: Lactuca sativa 'Ruby and Emerald Duet'"

'Ruby and Emerald Duet' is a custom lettuce seed blend from Renee's Garden that combines and emerald green baby butterhead with softly folded leaf rosettes together with a lovely, deep red, ruffled and crispy mini leaf lettuce. This glowing duet makes a beautiful tapestry of contrasting colors, textures and shapes. Both heat tolerant varieties make compact 5 to 6 inch heads at maturity. A feast for the eye and scrumptious to eat over a long harvest period, this duet is pretty as a picture in the garden or in big pots on a patio or deck. Savor young thinnings in your first spring salads. Then harvest plants by cutting mature heads when they feel firm and well-filled out. Pull and discard or compost overmature plants if they begin to elongate ("bolt") in hot weather as they are bitter at this stage. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
