I have had great success with this variety of red lettuce. It is reddish brown and contrasts well with Green Ice lettuce which is chartreuse. I plant it in mass to cover an entire square, by evenly scattering the seed around. My batch of lettuce, planted in early March, has produced huge amounts of lettuce, before it finally bolted in the middle of August. Even then, it was quite edible when the leaves were pulled from the seed stalks.

I grew Ruby Red and Simpson during the summer, which I found was a time that none of my other lettuces would grow. They were in shade, mind you, and came up slowly, but they grew. I use them as cut and come again so they are still growing. I also have some sprouting indoors right now to plop in later if need be.
