From a cross between Outredgeous and Sucrine, a plant with intensely red upright outer leaves surrounding a buttery yellow green interior, with a rosy heart. The full-sized heads are like a nested treasure to unwrap. Sweet buttery soft interiors, with crisper outer leaves. Good resistance to downy mildew, sclerotinia, and tip burn. Farm Original Variety!
