Lollo di Vino Cutting Lettuce Seed Organic
Lollo di Vino Cutting Lettuce seed is certified organic and open pollinated. This breed shows adaptability by total resistance to downy mildew. Breeders Frank and Karen first noticed this compact little “Lollo-type” leaf lettuce within the somewhat variable curls of our original ‘Merlot’ stock seed. The leaves are very dark purple, small and round with the characteristic hyper-crisped frilly margins of the finest Lollo lettuces, but it seems impervious to downy mildew. 125 years ago, these super curled types were referred to in Europe as “California curled lettuce.” I think of them as Italian lettuces. Identities lost and found. OSSI (Open Source Seed Initiative) Pledged Variety. About 300+ seed per pack.
