One of the prettiest lime-green varieties; the shiny-green sister of Lollo Rosso. This variety also has extremely frizzy, crinkled and compact with tight curly leaves, otherwise known as coral lettuce. The leaves are produced loosely in a whole head, are tender in taste, with a slight bitterness. A real standard in fresh European salads.
These very decorative lettuce types add a punch of colour, 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.
