Lettuce (Lactuca sativa)
Lettuce is world's most popular salad green. It is said that it has been in cultivation since at least 4500 B.C. Our varieties will change as the season progresses with cool weather loving leaf lettuces in the spring and fall, and heat tolerant 'batavian' types in mid summer.
Keep in the hydrator drawer of the refrigerator.
Lettuce is best used fresh but will keep for up to a week or so, if kept moist and refrigerated.
