Love It: Australian Yellow Leaf Lettuce

lettuce_australianyellowlea

Let me introduce my latest crush: ‘Austrian Yellow Leaf’ lettuce. Pretty chartreuse coloring, ruffly leaves, a sweet flavor, and moderate heat tolerance. She really is a Southern Belle. In the garden I’m coupling her up with ‘Rouge d’Hiver’, a tall, dark, and handsome heirloom romaine. They’ll really make quite the pair, don’t you think?

I bought seedlings for both at Seattle Tilth’s plant sale last weekend, but you can find seed for ‘Australian Yellow Leaf’ at Southern Exposure Seed Exchange and seed for ‘Rouge d’Hiver’ at Botanical Interests.

    I have got to start making a list of all these amazing lettuces I’m seeing on blogs this spring so I can get the seeds. Those look great. I’ll take your word for the great taste!

    Quite the pair indeed! I must tell you that I was just thinking to myself last week that I need to pay a visit to that great Seattle gardening blog because it has been way too long since I stopped by. Then I went through the comments on my last blog post and there you were! Such a coincedence. Can’t wait to get all caught up on your site!

    Gardener on Sherlock Street–I’m always trying new lettuces…there are so many that it fun to experiment. I always plant Forellenschluss though. It is by far the best lettuce around in my opinion.

    Flagstone Patio–I’ll admit I’m a bit of a nut for a nice ruffly leaf lettuce!

    Jessica–So funny. I was just thinking to myself, I really need to read that blog with all the beautiful pictures in LA! Happy Spring!

    Forget lettuce, I started red spinach! Well, I have some great lettuces too. It can be addictive, can’t it!?
