Translated to English "Red of Winter" is an elegant French romaine lettuce. Also known as Cimmaron, this variety was described in Vilmorin's "The Vegetable Garden" (1885).

Produces bronze-red outer leaves with a deep green heart. D'Hiver turns a deeper red in the cold. Tolerant of both heat and cold. This lettuce has large, broad leaves, 10"-12" heads, that are both buttery and crisp in texture with a sweet taste.

An exquisitely colorful addition to salads, sandwiches and as a bed for other dishes.
