Red Lettuce: Main Characteristics

Red lettuce is a variety of lettuce prized for its attractive deep red color and mild, crunchy flavor. Below, its main characteristics, historical background, sowing time to harvest, soil, climate, temperature, most recommended sowing method, sowing depth, germination, cultivation, irrigation and harvest are detailed.

Historical background

Lettuce (Lactuca sativa) is a vegetable widely grown around the world and has a long history of consumption. The red lettuce variety is one of many lettuce varieties that have been developed over the years to meet consumer taste and appearance preferences.

Sowing Time to Harvest

The time needed from planting to harvesting red lettuce can vary depending on local conditions and the specific variety. Red lettuces can typically be harvested 45 to 60 days after planting when grown under optimal conditions.


Red lettuce thrives in well-drained soil rich in organic matter. The ideal soil pH for growing lettuce is in the range of 6.0 to 7.0. The soil should be loose and well-drained to avoid root rot problems.

Climate and Temperature

Red lettuce is a cool weather vegetable and prefers moderate temperatures. The optimal temperature for its growth is in the range of 15-20°C (59-68°F). Avoid extreme heat, as it can cause lettuce to become bitter and prone to premature flowering.

Most Recommended Sowing Method and Sowing Depth

It is recommended to sow red lettuce by direct sowing into the ground or using transplanted seedlings. The planting depth should be approximately 0.5 cm. Be sure to maintain adequate distance between seeds or seedlings to allow optimal growth and the space needed for head development.


Red lettuce seeds generally germinate under adequate humidity and temperature conditions within 7 to 10 days. Provide constant watering during this period to facilitate uniform germination.

Cultivation and Irrigation

Keep the soil consistently moist while growing red lettuce. Water regularly and prevent the soil from drying out completely. It may be beneficial to use mulch to conserve moisture and reduce weeds.



Red lettuce is harvested when the leaves have reached a suitable size and the red color is attractive. It can be cut selectively, leaf by leaf, or the entire plant can be cut at ground level. Harvesting should be done before the plant blooms to maintain optimal flavor and avoid bitterness.

In short, red lettuce is a popular variety of lettuce that requires specific growing conditions, but with proper care, it can be a delicious and colorful addition to your garden or vegetable patch.
