This variety is so red that botany students didn’t recognize it as lettuce when they saw it in our breeding nursery back in ‘98, though a crowd did gather to discuss what it might be. A nice upright cut salad variety, forms a loose romaine head at maturity. An outrage of red in the salad bed, becoming a standard for salad growers. I guess this is our hit.
In April 2014, Outredgeous became the first lettuce grown in space (!!) aboard the International Space Station. From the Wild Garden to space in 15 years. That’s what plant breeders call overnight success. Farm Original Variety! OSSI (Open Source Seed Initiative) Pledged Variety.
