SXP-0276 DMR

If you like the looks of Red Hot (our most popular red leaf lettuce), you’ll find this sister lettuce shares many of the same sought-after attributes, while standing slightly taller and more upright. It’s also our darkest baby red leaf, which only increases its consumer appeal. The upper halves of these leaves are wide, wavy and very dark – probably best described as brown-black. The lower quarters are tightly tapered and feature a strong mid-rib.
