SXP-0267 DMR

To get a better sense of just how attractive this lettuce really is, imagine a cross between Red Batavia and Red Romaine. The leaf blades are tall and slender, domed at the top and tightly tapered at the bottom with a jagged leaf margin – which also makes them easy to harvest. The color is impressive, as well: a deep brown-red. The growth is upright and quite vigorous for a red Romaine. The taste is rather crunchy, thanks to the thick, strong mid-rib.
