Red oak-leaved lettuce "Rossa Ricciolina da Taglio" - Lactuca sativa L.
An early, productive variety. It grows in 52-63 days. Bordeaux-colored "oak"-leaves. After cutting, they grow back again.
Grown in the open field and in the greenhouse.
Seeds are sown in open ground in early April, in wide rows with row spacing of 60-70 cm. The sowing depth is 1.5-2 cm. Rolling is carried out before and after sowing.
When dense seedlings appear, thinning is performed twice: in the phase of one true leaf at a distance of 5-7 cm and 1.5 months after sowing, leaving a distance of 15-20 cm between the plants.
Care consists in loosening row spacings and watering.
Watering is carried out along the furrows, trying to avoid water getting on the plant leaves.
