Impressive dark color while not sacrificing speed. Open-heading yet compact. Slowness to bolt and disease resistance lend well to an extended harvest window and year-round production. Heads finish a little smaller than Ruby Sky but have improved color and field-holding ability. High resistance to downy mildew races EU 16–34, 36, US 5–9, and Nasonovia ribisnigri aphid; intermediate resistance to lettuce mosaic virus. MT0-30. Avg. 18,000 seeds/lb. Packet: 250 seeds.
