Mache has been cultivated in France since the 17th century, and in France it is known as doucette. It is also known as "lamb's lettuce" because its leaves resemble the size and shape of a lamb's tongue.
It is the only lettuce type that does not occur in red form as well as green. Iceberg is the given name to dozens of cultivars of lettuce, all of which are adapted to specific planting regions and time periods.

The peak season for Russian red kale is in the winter months.
Russian Red kale is thick, chewy and juicy. Its purple blushed and tipped gray-green leaves are lobed like an oak leaf with ruby red veins.
No amount of cooking will soften the stems so use only the leaves. A meaty green seeks meaty complex flavors such as grilled pork, pancetta, sausage, garlic chiles and caraway. Cook in rich olive or nut oils, butter or sesame oil.
Until the end of the Middle Ages, kale was one of the most common green vegetables in all of Europe.
