A unique, rarer variety of romaine lettuce specifically bred for culinary use and nutritional value, Intred lettuce is an interesting addition to any garden. With a deep, crimson red core and inner leaves, that slowly fade away to glossy, light green leaves, this lettuce stands out no matter where its planted. With a crisper and more flavourful taste than normal romaine lettuce, with delicious undertones from the antioxidant-rich red leaves, this lettuce is a perfect addition to any salad, sandwich, or burger. A must have in any garden that’s built for culinary use.
