Well, we can’t go around calling ourselves Uprising Seeds and not sell a lettuce called “Revolution” now can we? Revolution is a seriously flashy, darker red version of the classic Lollo Rosa type. Super frilly and compact, it is most often cut as baby leaf in salad mixes, though it grows to a surprisingly dense (if not smallish) head. Compare to the more ubiquitous “Dark Red Lollo Rosa”, but with a darker richer wine red color. Essential baby lettuce to add loft to the mix.

Medium. Prefers well-drained, and evenly moist soil and is sensitive to low pH.
Uneven watering can result in tip burn, the browning of the leaf margins, which is the result of an inability of the plant to move calcium to the growing edge fast enough to meet its growth needs. Consistent, evenly moist soil or calcium amendments can be beneficial if this seems to be a problem.
Hot weather can cause premature bolting. Generally, when the plants begin to stretch upwards (to flower), the leaves become bitter and the eating quality poor.
