This lettuce is known for attributes more often attributed to a bottle of fine red wine: namely a dark burgundy appearance and renowned shelf-life. Instead of the classic oak-leaf shape, these leaves have a slightly ruffled contour that consumers find appealing. Complimenting that laid-back look is a dark burgundy color that fades to green near the stem. Good leaf thickness and a glossy appearance not only add to its like-ability, they’re part of the reason why this lettuce consistently ranks near the top of it class when it comes to shelf-life.
