Inventory, head : 0
Green Leaf lettuce produces semi-frilled, loose leaf heads with colors varying from lime green to sea green in the outer leaves to pea green and cream colored inner leaves. The texture is consistently crispy and succulent with a mild flavor and slightly bitter undertone. The bitterness generally develops in maturing greens versus young greens.
Green Leaf lettuce is available year-round.
Green Leaf lettuce is one of hundreds of members of the Lactuca genus and the Asteraceae family. Lettuce is categorized into six different subspecies or botanical varieties: Crisphead (Iceberg and Batavian), Romaine, Butter, Latin, Leaf and Stem. All lettuce types except for Iceberg occur in red and green leaf form. Of all lettuce types, Leaf lettuces are the most commonly planted lettuces in the world. They are favored for their cut-and-come again nature, their easy ability to grow and for the variety of Leaf lettuces available.
