Regular watering will ensure a healthy growth but be cautious not to overwater. One of the standout qualities of the Ruby Red lettuce is its resistance to bolting, making it a reliable choice for extended harvests. As the plant matures, you'll witness the beautiful transformation of its leaves from green to a deep, lustrous ruby red, a sight that's as rewarding as the harvest itself.
