LETTUCE SIMPHONY )
A beautiful red variety which is a crossbreed from Lollo and Batavian varieties. This means you get leaves that are not quite frilly and almost have a bubbly look to them. A great baby leaf variety.
A bright green lettuce which has thick and crunchy leaves. Not as frilly as some other varieties, but just as attractive in the salad bowl.
A dark green variety that is famed for its crunchy texture and thick leaves. The leaves have a very slight frill to the edges, but they are best described as wavy. A firm favourite with baby leaf growers.
This Product is one of our fantastic kits from the DUG Plant Box. Please note these are delivered from the 6th of April.
