Growing Tips

Ruby Red Lettuce is cold tolerant and can be planted in soil up to a couple weeks before last frost. However, if your winter weather is extended, seeds may rot or get washed away.

Plant in full sun when soil temps are above 60°F for best germination.

Culinary Uses

Use Ruby Red Leaf Lettuce in a mix of other lettuces for a great salad that is loaded with nutrients.

Harvesting Crops

You can start harvesting your lettuce leaves at about 21 days; however you'll want to be careful not to damage the head (which will be ready in about 55 days). Ruby

Red Lettuce heads may be a green to purple color when they are ready to pick.

Harvesting Seed

Allow a couple of lettuce plants to bolt and flower. These flowers will dry out on plant and have puffs of white cotton showing around the top (like a dandelion). Pick these flower heads and toss them in a bag.

Break the flower heads apart and oval shaped seeds will fall out. Allow the seeds to dry for a couple of weeks before safely storing them for the next growing season.
