Butterhead lettuce "Sanguine Ameliore" (Lactuca sativa) is a real rarity. This variety produces attractive, rather large, compact heads consisting of soft, tender tasting leaves of unusual colour. Their pale green surface is marked with tiny, scarlet dots that add great ornamental value to the plant. The most important, however, is the taste of the presented lettuce. It would be a great addition to salads and sandwiches, as well as a great garnish for warm plates.
Seeds of the butterhead lettuce "Sanguine Ameliore" can be sown under covers in winter and early spring, while direct sow in the open field takes place in spring and summer. Although the variety offered here looks exotic, it does not have special requirements in regard to cultivation, as it withstands light frosts. It will grow well on any sunny site with fertile, humous, light and not too dry soil. Leaves of this lettuce cultivar are not only delicious and decorative, but also provide great nutritional value. They contain a number of valuable vitamins, minerals and a lot of fibre that is essential for proper metabolism. The harvest occurs from spring to autumn, depending on the time of sowing.
