Lettuce Besson Rouge is a very handsome heirloom variety. This is a butterhead type with 12 inch heads and wine red, savoyed leaves which darken as time passes. The undersides of the leaves, and the stems, are pink.

Start from seed 4 to 6 weeks before average last frost date. Sow seeds 1/4 inch deep in wide rows and thin to 14 inches apart for best-formed heads. Thinned seedlings can be replanted.

Keep soil moist but not soggy. Protect from rabbits and slugs. Extend the harvest season by planting successive crops. Summer heat causes lettuce to bolt.

Pick outer leaves as they grow or harvest all at once. Harvesting when weather or day temperature is cooler will result in crisper leaves. Do not harvest lettuces until you are ready to use it.
