Green Leaf lettuce is the general name provided for dozens of varieties that produce semi-frilled loose leaf lettuces with colors varying from lime green to sea green in the outer leaves to pea green and cream colored inner leaves. The inner leaves are the lettuce filets. The texture of the filets is consistently crispy and succulent and the flavor generally mild and insipid with a slightly bitter undertone.
Lettuce is categorized into six different types, also known as subspecies or botanical varieties. The six types of lettuce are Crisphead (Iceberg and Batavian), Romaine, Butter, Latin, Leaf and Stem. All lettuce types except for Iceberg occur in red and green leaf form. Green Leaf lettuce filets are simply a product created out of an industry always hungry to create new products out of existing ones. Just as lettuces became mixed, vacuum sealed and micro-sized, they also became divided, the outer leaves used as baby lettuces and the inner hearts given a trade name such as "filet" for pure marketing purposes. Thus, Lettuce filets, Romaine hearts and micro greens.
