Slowest bolting red leaf. Deep bronze-red variety with a large frame that was an All American Winner for 1985. A loose-headed, vigorous early producer with good flavor and good appearance. Taste stays mild for a long time without bitterness.
45 days. A favorite to use as baby greens, Red Sails is ready to harvest after just 2 or 3 weeks, and grows to a full head in just over six weeks. It is very heat tolerant; the soft buttery leaves will grow for quite some time in warm weather without getting bitter.
