Originally from the Mediterranean region, lettuce has always been a popular vegetable. 

There are many lettuce varieties, with availability changing often. 'Head' lettuces - firm, tightly packed heads with a central core or heart and crisp leaves. Leafy lettuces - some have a small heart, such as buttercrunch, some do not and their leaves can be picked individually. Leafy lettuce has a soft texture and loose leaves. Other greens - such as endive, frisee and salad greens.

Butterhead or buttercrunch

This is a green lettuce with loose leaves. It has a soft texture and flat smooth succulent leaves which have a delicate buttery feel and flavour. Some varieties have heart-shaped leaves while others are more rounded. Red buttercrunch or red butterhead are also available.

Availability

All year.

Store

Refrigerate in plastic bags or store in the crisper. Avoid squashing the lettuce. Alternatively, if the lettuce roots are still attached, stand the lettuce in a jar with the roots in water, and do not refrigerate.

Ways to eat

Lettuce is used raw in salads, sandwiches and rolls. Use several varieties of lettuce together to increase interest. Lettuce leaves may also be used as wraps. Older leaves can be used in soups.
