This is a wine-red version of Saladbowl. The color is most pronounced early in the Spring, but it grows well throughout the season.

Neutral smiln32 On Oct 28, 2004, smiln32 from Oklahoma City, OK (Zone 7a) wrote:

Leaf lettuce variety - the easiest and most reliable to grow. Sow seeds in early spring and again after the very hot days of summer are over. In cooler climates, you can make 2 to 3 spring plantings, timed 2 weeks apart.

To harvest, pull the whole plant or just snap off the outer leaves.
