Flame Lettuce Seeds


Flame Lettuce Seeds. Flame Lettuce is a open-pollinated leaf lettuce that was introduced in 1988 by Harris Moran. Even though Flame Lettuce's recent introduction doesn't qualify it for heirloom status when using the pre World War II dating requirement, Flame Lettuce is still an heirloom by the standards that require 20 years after introduction as a condition. Flame lettuce produces bright red leaves that are intensified by colder temperatures. The first couple leaves of the Flame Lettuce plant are less red and flatter, as the plant develops the leaves become more red and crinkly.  Most of the red color is on the top sides of the leaves with the backsides being a mostly bright green.  Flame Lettuce makes a beautiful contrast when tossing a salad.  The vibrance of Flame Lettuce and ease of growing make it a favorite for market growers.  Heirloom Flame Lettuce is slow to bolt which is really a plus in hotter climates.  Flame is a tender lettuce with mild flavor.  Flame Lettuce is quick growing allowing you to harvest the outer leaves leaving the center leave to continue to produce.  50 days until full maturity, as with any lettuce Flame leaf Lettuce can be harvested at any stage of growth.  Packet contains approximately 250 Flame Lettuce Seeds grown naturally with love and care.  Happy planting!!  We have a wide variety of Heirloom Vegetable, Herb, and Flower Seeds for sale.
