Some folks may say 'Merlot' lettuce is too pretty to eat, but with that deep red coloring, it's loaded with anthocyanins, those same health-promoting antioxidants found in red wine. Yes, you can plant 'Merlot' as an ornamental, but think how beautiful your fresh salads and sandwiches will look, bedecked with these gorgeous red leaves. Pick baby leaves for salads or harvest mature leaves as needed, leaving the rest of the plant to continue growing. If you decide to harvest the whole head, cut the stem about 2" above soil line; new leaves will emerge from the remaining stem. This variety is slow to bolt and as most lettuces are, is also frost tolerant, so consider succession plantings of this beautiful, tasty variety.
