Red Acre is a popular variety grown as microgreens and baby leaf production because it adds color and variety to any micro-mix. At a very young stage the stems have a violet color and green leaves. When grown to full maturity it is a small compact short stemmed heading plant that produces hard round deep red-purple heads 5 to 7 inches in diameter. These heads weigh from 2 to 4 pounds. Resistant to Yellows and splitting. Heads are solid in early stages and have good uniform color.
