You cannot get enough lettuce? Then you will love this seed-mix. We specifically chose varieties which suit perfectly for post season. They are sowed after the last harvest in summer (August till September). By the end of October these lettuces are ready to harvest. No worries about freeze! The variety sugar loaf for example needs at least one frosty night to develope its typical strong aroma.
Escariol is an established winter endive with big and heavy heads. It's very resilient and known for its resistance against bad weather conditions.
The radicchio (Palla Rossa) forms closed, ball-shaped and firm heads. Their leaves are coloured intensely ruby with white ripping. This variety is also resistant against slight night frosts and can be grown easily in autumn. Did you know? Radicchio affects the hematopoiesis and the cardiovascular system positively.
The chichory selection of sugarloaf impresses with well-filled, cone-shaped heads. This variety is frost-resistant too. Furthermore it can be well stored until March. Hint: the slightly bitter taste reduces due to increasing ripeness or a quick bath in lukewarm water.
