A new variety for The Farm at Bogue. This red Batavia variety looks like a cross between our red Oak & Summer Crisp. Smaller leaves than Summer Crisp but work well for sandwich & burger toppings and of course it makes a great salad.
Batavia - Red
keep it fresh & lasts much longer.
Keep in your crisper in a bag. Pull off individual leaves as you use. Rember to wash!
If you notice wilting, mist or sprinkle a little water at the root cube & wrap the bag up to increase humidity.
Keep away from high ethelyne producing fruits like pineapple, apple, grapes, mango, melons, bananas & tomatoes. Which cause brown spots & premature spoiling.
