Can you say gorgeous? Lunix Lettuce is by far the most beautiful lettuce we ever grew, but its many qualities don’t stop there. This oak-leaf type produces vibrant, lustrous deep purple leaves with only the faintest of green at their base. The plants are very slow to bolt and their upright, symmetrical form gives them a striking visual impact in the garden. The flavor is mild and the texture is fine with a nice crunch.
We to grow Lunix as head lettuces and harvest individual leaves from the base of the plant to enjoy those large, crunchy leaves at their best, but Lunix can also be harvested as a cut-and-come-again lettuce by sowing it into rows at a smaller spacing.
It is very cold hardy and grows well into the winter under low tunnel conditions. A gourmet choice that is hard to find.
