Deronda Red features a rich dark red leaf with a lovely crunchy texture and a real Romaine shape that can be grown virtually all year round.  Ready in about 6-7 weeks from sowing (can be eaten earlier if impatient!)  Price for 150 seeds. 

Perfect as a burst of quick colour for your salads.  Grow with Baby Leaf Catalogna Cerbiatta for a bold red and green combination.

SOW & GROW: a small pinch sprinkled in a pot at any time of the year or a short row (30cm long) once the soil is workable.  For a family you will need 2 short rows at a time.  For a continuous supply you need to sow repeatedly every 10-14 days.  Shallow rooted and hungry your baby leaves will enjoy rich compost and need to be kept moist.  In spring your baby leaves are ready in about 40-45 days.  If you don’t pick Deronda young it will start to form a medium sized Romaine
