About Red Leaf Lettuce

Red Leaf Lettuce (Lactuca sativa) is a leafy vegetable in the daisy family. It resembles romaine lettuce except in its tips, which have a red or purple tinge. Aside from adding a burst of color to your favorite salad or sandwich, this vegetable offers numerous benefits. Generally grown as a hardy annual, red leaf lettuce is easily cultivated, although it requires relatively low temperatures to prevent it from flowering quickly. Red leaf lettuce is a rich source of vitamin K and vitamin A, and a moderate source of folate and iron.

Planting And Care

  • Keep well watered to avoid bolting
  • Avoid over-watering
  • Water when the soil feels dry to touch
  • Apply nitrogen-rich fertilizer in the growing stages
  • Avoid damage to the roots if you wish to grow further
Sunlight Full Sun
Watering Moderate
Soil Well-drained nitrogen rich soils having pH 6.0-6.8
Temperature 16-18 degree celsius

Storage After harvest, lettuce lasts the longest when kept at 0 °C (32 °F) and 96 percent humidity. Lettuce quickly degrades when stored with fruit such as apples, pears and bananas that release the ripening agent ethylene gas.
