Outredgeous Red Romaine Lettuce
Really red heads with romaine crunch and flavor. This popular bright-red romaine makes a frilly, somewhat loose head that allows enough light onto the leaves to really develop the color. An OSSI-pledged open source variety from farmer/breeder Frank Morton. 300 seeds
The Open Source Seed Initiative exists so that breeders who originate new varieties can protect them from exploitation and patenting by corporations. It means that the breeder has freely given up her patent rights in order to keep the variety in the public domain forever. The OSSI pledge reads: "You have the freedom to use these OSSI-pledged seeds in any way you choose. In return, you pledge not to restrict others' use of these seeds or their derivatives, by patents or other means, and to include this pledge in any transfer of these seeds or their derivatives."
