New Red Fire
This prizehead leafy lettuce is a non heading type with exceptionally large leaves. Commercial growers like it for its uniformity, color and excellent resistance to bolting and disease. The market-quality, large, loose heads are green at the base and dark red at the ruffled leaf edges. This variety has strong heat and moderate cold tolerance. It is suitable both for cool and warm conditions and retains its crisp fresh flavor through the growing season.
