Royal Red is one of the prettiest red lettuces on the market right now. Its leaves have a great texture that is both soft yet crunchy and an excellent, sweet taste. It is a mid-sized lettuce that matures uniformly growing 6 – 12 inches.
Simpson Elite grows very fast, and is ready for harvest about 48 days. But unlike "Black Seeded Simpson", Simpson Elite is much, much longer standing. Its bolt resistance gives gardeners the widest harvest window for any lettuce of this.
