Merlot Lettuce

I grow many varieties of lettuce in my garden each year; Merlot Lettuce is often included.  My favorite heirloom varieties are leaf lettuce:  Amish Deer Tongue, Cimmaron, Henderson’s Black Seeded Simpson, Mascara, etc.

Many leaf lettuce varieties are good for cool weather and many harvests (if you don’t cut them at the root).  So be prepared for weeks of yummy salads from early May to mid-June and from October to until the hard frosts freeze the soil (Zone 4a).
