This popular favorite won an AAS award

Days to Maturity: 45

All-America Selections (AAS) Winner 1985

A favorite among gardeners who prize beauty as well as flavor, Red Sails received an AAS award when it was introduced—and has never looked back! Among the very first to arise, it resists bolting, giving you an especially long season of delectable eating. The large, erect leaves are deep red at the ruffled tips, shading into a bronzy-maroon and finally becoming green toward the base. A great source of rich color for the salad bowl, they are high-quality eating, with a soft texture and buttery flavor that appeals to all ages.

Lettuce thrives in cold weather and can be sown directly into the garden, starting in early spring. For an even earlier harvest, sow indoors; the seedlings don't mind transplanting. If a fall crop is desired, begin in late summer. Grow in single rows, plants spaced 18 inches apart, or in containers.

Pkt is 32 oz. (approx 630 seeds); (sowing a 30-foot row)

Prolific and long lasting

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Beautiful in the garden, resists freezes in the 20s, performs well even when crowded, very tasty, and produces until temps reach the 90s here in central Texas. Our most prolific lettuce variety.

Cruise through WInter with Red Sailsl

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

From October to May Park's Red Sails Lettuce performs flawlessly providing cut and come again fresh fast salads all winter long. A layer of snow only makes the leaves more attractive.
