LT482A - Darkness
Darkness looseleaf lettuce seeds are a Lolla Rossa type. The incredibly dense, frilly leaves are green with deep, deep red edges. The stiff frills help to separate other leaves in salads as well as adding a lovely red colour. This variety should do well in low light conditions. Its small leaves are perfect for garnishes. Add contrast to your lettuce bed with this tasty and remarkable lettuce. For ultimate economy, try planting one seed in each cell of a 72-cell Plug Insert. Once the seedlings are ready for transplant, you can use a short piece of 1/4" dowel (or even a pencil) to pop each lettuce out of the tray. They can then be planted at precise spacing, which does away with thinning and waste.

How To Grow
Lettuce can be harvested from the garden from late spring to the late fall, and sometimes (given a bit of protection) all winter. The high protein chlorophyll in the dark-green leaves is highly nutritious. Salads are not complete without these leafy greens. Follow along with this handy how to grow lettuce from seed guide and grow fresh salad leaves all season long.
