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 texture is consistently crispy and succulent and the flavor mild with a slightly bitter undertone. Bitterness occurs in maturing greens versus young greens.
Green leaf lettuce is available year-round.
Lettuce is categorized into six different types, also known as subspecies or botanical varieties. The six types of lettuce are crisphead (cceberg 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.
