Organic Lollo Rossa Lettuce (Lactuca sativa)
Richly ruffled Lollo Rossa allegedly pays tribute to Italian actress Gina Lollobrigida and her signature curls. This maroon-edged heirloom packs a pungent punch, adding flavorful contrast to blends made with milder greens. Dependable cut-and-come-again crop.
