Early maturing, fast growing lettuce that grows well all season. The big rosettes of deeply-lobed, finely divided, delicate oak-like leaves have a crisp, tender, with sweet and spicy tones and will not turn bitter. Harvested as baby greens about 25 days, and 55 days for mature heads.
When and Where to Plant : Plant Green Salad Bowl lettuce in early spring or late summer for best results. Directly sow seeds outdoors as soon as the soil can be worked in spring and again in late summer. If starting indoors, begin about 4 to 6 weeks before the last expected frost date.
Care : Maintain even soil moisture throughout the growing season to prevent bitterness and bolting. Lettuce prefers well-draining soil rich in organic matter. Amending with compost is beneficial. Apply a layer of mulch around the lettuce plants to help retain moisture and keep the soil cool. Fertilize with a balanced fertilizer at planting and consider a nitrogen-rich side dressing during growth.
Harvesting : Harvest lettuce leaves when they have reached a usable size, typically 4 to 6 inches in length. For a continuous harvest, pick outer leaves, allowing the inner ones to continue growing. Cut leaves near the base with clean, sharp scissors or shears. If you prefer to harvest the whole head, do so when it has reached your desired size, before it starts to bolt.
