CERTIFIED ORGANIC. Brentwood is an organic red tango-type lettuce that feature dense heads with leaves that are a rich burgundy red that fade to green towards the stem. When cut, the glossy, uniform leaves are slightly cupped and the edges ruffled, which adds a delightful volume to a salad. This lettuce is highly flavouful with a great shelf life when correctly stored. Brentwood is part of the Eazyleaf series, bred to be easy to grow, harvest and process for market growers. It has good field holding ability and good bolt tolerance. High resistance to downy mildew, Nasonovia ribisnigri aphid, and tomato bushy stunt virus; and intermediate resistance to lettuce mosaic virus.

Timing

Lettuce grows best in cool weather in the spring and fall, but it can be grown in the summer, and all winter long in milder regions. Sow short rows every 2-3 weeks following the last average frost date for a continual harvest. Using a cloche, cold frame, or greenhouse over mid-late summer plantings can extend the harvest period right into winter. Optimal soil temperature for germination: 10-22°C (50-72°F). Seeds should sprout in 7-15 days, depending on conditions. Lettuce seeds don’t sprout easily when the soil temperature is over 22°C (72°F) in summer. Get around this by sprouting them indoors in a cool area, or pre-sprout by sprinkling seeds on a damp paper towel and placing it in a plastic bag in the fridge for a few days. In hot weather most lettuce goes to seed rapidly, so have new plantings ready to go, and watch for "good resistance to bolting" in the product description.
