SALE! Merlot Lettuce Seed Pack
THESE SEEDS WERE FOR THE 2021 GROWING SEASON.
They will still grow, but aren't as fresh as they were last year. We have marked these down to 75% off.
Looking for that perfect lettuce to complement a rich autumn feast? In Merlot, you’ll find deep garnet hues with a brilliant sparkle. The rich, earthy flavor belies a distinct nose of black cherry with herbaceous undertones.
Unlike other merlots, this one does not improve with age; harvest young.
-Sow indoors beginning 8-10 weeks before last frost, or direct sow beginning about 4 weeks before last frost. Harvest late spring and summer sowings promptly to beat bolting. Continue sowing until about 2 weeks before first fall frost. Lettuce likes steady (but not excessive) moisture and can become prematurely bitter during dry spells; keep irrigated for best-tasting leaves. Harvest at baby stage when leaves are 3" high, or at maturity. Merlot is an open lettuce, harvest mature heads when full and frilly.
-Days to germination: 3-10 days. Days to maturity: 60 days.
