Lettuce is a member of the Aster family, the largest plant family with some 24,000 named species. It is also one of the most popular vegetables in the United States, with hundreds of cultivated varieties. There are four main types: Butterhead, Romaine, Iceberg and Leaf. We grow more than a dozen varieties of lettuce and plant it all season long, but our best and most reliable harvests are in the spring and fall.
Storage: Lettuce is best stored dry in plastic in the fridge. Do not store lettuce wet — it will spoil quickly.
