MARVEL OF FOUR SEASONS IS A FRENCH BUTTER LETTUCE THAT HAS NO WEATHER PREFERENCES SO IT CAN BE GROWN ALL THROUGH THE YEAR INCLUDING WINTER! A LETTUCE FOR ALL THE SEASONS AND IT TASTES WONDERFUL TOO!

Marvel of Four Seasons is a butter-head lettuce that is a true delight. As tasty as it is beautiful, and it is a truly beautiful looking lettuce!

Also known as Merveille des Quatre Saisons this French butter-head lettuce is famous for its signature butter-head shape boasting the appearance of a bibb-type rosette with an array of beautiful colours ranging in bronze, gold, red and green. Revealing ruby toned leaves that encompass tightly folded green hearts.

With its ability to be harvested in extended seasons the four seasons lettuce will thrive in a range of climates. This vigorous plant is very easy to grow and matures in 60 days. Its dark colour develops on cooler spring or autumn weather, but its texture always remains crisp and its taste unforgettable.

This pre-1885 French heirloom has been lovingly cultivated in kitchen gardens for centuries. It was featured in Vilmorin’s 1885 book The Vegetable Garden, where it was listed as the most ‘highly coloured of all the Lettuces grown about Paris’. It has also been found carrying the names of ‘Continuity’, ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ and ‘Besson Rouge’.
