For years we've been trying to find a variety of lettuce that tastes great and grows well in our yard. We had never previously found the "winner". For 2017 we tried 'Red Salad Bowl' -- excellent growth, tastes great, looks great. This summer's weather was perfect and maybe we took good care of it and/or lucked into other successful factors, but we think we've found our "winner", so we're growing it again next year. Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

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

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.
