DEVIL EAR LETTUCE (Lactuca sativa), also known as Les Orielles des Diablo, is a French heirloom that produces gorgeous, very large, unusually shaped rosettes of tongue shaped leaves tinged in burgundy. Originated with The Abundant Life Foundation. This devil is beguiling with wonderful flavor that is never bitter. Holds a long time in the garden. 30 days Baby, 60 days Full. 100 seeds.
GROWING TIPS: Lettuces are my absolute favorite - I dedicate a lot of space to them in my garden because I like variety and they can be really beautiful kissed by the sun. Direct sow in early spring and late summer. The more space each lettuce has to grow the larger it becomes. If you are sowing for quick greens, don't bother to thin - just use your scissors to clips what you need for dinner as it will continue to grow. Lettuces love cool (not cold) weather and respond to well-prepared soil and regular weeding and watering. Relatively pest-free, with the exception of slugs (easily combatted with a barrier of ashes or copper wire) and furry invaders (chicken ware cloches work best there).
