About Green Salad Bowl Lettuce
Salad Bowl Green seeds grow into green leaves of lettuce that are ready to harvest in 45 to 50 days. The Salad Bowl Green lettuce is one of the most popular varieties of crisphead lettuce, and can be grown in zones 3-12. The leaves of the Salad Bowl Green have a mildly sweet flavor.
Salad Bowl is an ideal lettuce variety for the home vegetable garden. It forms large, lime-green rosettes of delicate, tender leaves. This variety has relatively good heat tolerance and does not get bitter in hot weather. The baby leaves are ready for harvest in just 28 days and reach full size in about 50 days.
Sowing: Green Salad Bowl lettuce seeds grow well in cool weather, so buy lettuce seeds online and sow them when the soil temperature reaches at least 35 degrees F, or as soon as the soil can be worked. If the soil temperature rises above 75 degrees F, the seeds become dormant. Direct sow the seed in rich soil and full sun, spreading them as thinly as possible in rows 1-2′ apart; when the seedlings begin to grow, thin them to a distance of 6-8″. Succession crops can be grown for fresh lettuce all season in areas with cool summers or warm winters; this is accomplished by planting a new crop every 2 weeks. For companion planting benefits, grow green Salad Bowl lettuce seeds with onions, cucumbers, or carrots.
Growing: Since lettuce has very shallow roots, it needs adequate moisture in order to stay tender and sweet; keep the soil evenly moist. Applying mulch helps conserve moisture and control weeds. Salad Bowl lettuce is quite heat resistant.
Harvesting: Lettuce retains its crisp sweetness best when harvested in the morning. For microgreens, cut the entire plant above the surface of the soil as soon as it reaches a height of 2-3″. Most types of lettuce will produce a second or even third crop after being cut, if the weather stays temperate. Leaves of lettuce can be gathered all season until the main stem of the plant starts to grow, at which time the leaves will grow bitter. To harvest the entire plant when mature, cut it just above the surface of the soil; lettuce tastes best when fresh, but keeps in the refrigerator for about a week.
