Red Salad Bowl is a variety of looseleaf lettuce with oakleaf type leaves. The deep red and purple leaves are especially tender, with sweet and spicy tones. Red Salad Bowl is best grown during the cooler portions of the growing season in spring or fall, though it is slow to bolt in warmer conditions. The leaves are commonly used in salads, and can first be harvested as baby greens approximately 25 days after germinating. The full growth cycle is usually complete by 55 days.
