Description

Lettuce - Red Salad Bowl - Lactuca sativa

Hardy Annual Heirloom. This leaf lettuce grows large, upright plants with long, deeply lobed, burgundy-red leaves which form a large rosette for an early harvest. The inner leaves have a bronze glow. Red Salad Bowl is mild and not bitter. Plant it in spring, summer, and fall. It was introduced in 1955.

Did You Know? Red leaf lettuce is rich in vitamin A.

Soil & Water: Lettuce likes full sun except in hot summer climates where it prefers some shade, especially in the afternoon. Add plenty of compost to the soil to encourage rapid growth. Water evenly and moderately to prevent bitterness.

Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 4 weeks before transplanting outside, or sow seed directly as soon as the soil is workable. Make successive plantings every 10-14 days for a continuous harvest. In mild climates, lettuce can be sown from spring through fall.

Harvesting & Storage: Begin harvesting outer leaves as soon as they are large enough and continue until a central stalk begins to form, which signals the end of the harvest period. You can also harvest the entire plant when it's mature but still young and crisp.
