The lettuce is curly and crunchy with a very smooth texture. It is ideal in a few recipes and dishes or mixed with other lettuce varieties.
These very decorative lettuce types add a punch of color, texture, and volume to salads. The curled leaves also have a practical function as they increase the surface area enabling salad dressings to be caught up in the leaf and not to the bottom of your salad bowl.
Keep heads in an unsealed bag in your refrigerator, and it should last for 3-4 days. Any washed loose leaves will keep in the fridge for a day or two.
