Dobies have sent me a pack of Lettuce Sulfita which is a new addition to their catalogue for 2024. Average pack contains 200 seeds for £2.99
A cross between a red Batavia and a red Iceberg, Lettuce ‘Sulfita’ has the crunch of an iceberg, the curl of a Batavia, plus a lovely cherry colour to brighten up your salad plate.
Harvest whole heads or pick as single leaves. Plants are slow to bolt and resistant to downy mildew. Their iceberg parentage gives the thick, crisp heads a longer fridge-life than other types.
Height and spread: 30cm (12in).
