Lettuce – Red Salad Bowl (Organic)

£1.98£3.00

Fast growing lettuce with long, burgundy red and deeply cut leaves.. This lettuce is known for its excellent taste and resistance to bolt. It has a non-heading growth habit with sweet, succulent oakleaf type leaves. We love it for its tenderness and cheerfulness in salads. As the name suggests one lettuce is usually enough to fill a whole salad bowl.

Best grown in spring, early summer and fall. However it can be grown in the hotter summer months too as it’s slow to bolt.

‘Red Salad Bowl’ was awarded the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit (AGM) in 1993.
