56 days. Compact newer “lollo” type. Selected out of Merlot by Frank Morton, who noticed a particularly frilly individual. He saved seed from this and Lollo di Vino was born! Frank calls this a “distinctive little frizzle head,” and it definitely is! Very dark purple leaf type, with a very curly leaf margin. Dense, rounded plants. The variety’s mildew resistance comes as a bonus, making this another spectacular new variety!
