Marvel of Four Seasons, organic seeds
Lactuca sativa var. capitata crispum
Is a French lettuce from the mid 1800s of Burgundy-red leaves changing to a brilliant green around a close knit cream-white head. The leaves are thick, juicy with marvellous flavour. As the name shows M.O.F.S. can be grown the whole season. The red colour is deepest in autumn. M.O.F.S. forms heads quickly and should be harvested at the right time. A portion contains about 300 seeds.
