Gautier Seeds – Red Crush® lettuce, red to the heart
Red Crush® is the first totally red lettuce, with an intense colour from its outside to its heart. The Red Crush® concept comes in several varieties: a Little Gem with deliciously crunchy leaves; a Mini Cos with delicate, fine red foliage and a slightly sugary taste; and a Multileaf with serrated leaves. Red Crush® was one of the innovation award finalists at FL Berlin due to its multiple benefits from the field to the plate. It possesses good agronomic qualities, is attractive and easy to prepare. Until now, all red lettuce varieties were only red on their outer leaves but Gautier has managed to achieve an intense red colour all the way to the heart of the lettuce, as can be seen in this innovative range.
