Lactuca sativa ‘red leprechaun’
Our favorite lettuce in the garden this small, but fun red and green leafy lettuce is like a pot of gold. Maybe that’s why they call it the Red Leprechaun, its small enough to grow in a pot or in the garden.
Plant your seeds inside and move the plants outside early and then reseed for another crop. Lettuce likes cooler temperatures so don’t wait too long. They are an easy choice because they don’t require much, grow fast and the leaves can be picked soon. They also only need 5 hours of sunlight so they can stay cooler in part sun. Plant this one and you will be seeing red leprechauns (lettuce that is) in the garden in about 50 days.
