Classic Bibb Lettuce, perfected in our controlled growing environments. Soft, buttery delicate leaves. Crisp and bright green and recognizable by its compact rosette shaped heads and large, easily separated, buttery leaves.
Our living Bibb lettuce, also known as Boston lettuce, botanically classified as Lactuca sativa, is one variety of dozens of butterheads lettuces. Delivered to you with the roots still attached. Bibb lettuce is recognized by its compact rosette shaped heads and large, easily separated, buttery leaves.
FLAVOR PROFILE: Bibb lettuce is best suited for both raw and cooked applications such as braising or boiling. Predominately used as the principal ingredient in salad, its textures and subtle flavors are a perfect canvas for savory and bold, or bright, fruity companion ingredients. It is also commonly layered in sandwiches or used as a wrap for tuna or chicken. In addition to fresh preparations, Boston lettuce can be cooked and transformed into an earthy and sultry ingredient when slowly braised or added to a bowl of simmering soup, achieving a level of caramelization when paired with the right ingredients such as butter, rich meats, and chicken stock. Boston lettuce pairs well with citrus, tomatoes, radishes, chiles, fried and soft-boiled eggs, fresh or aged goat cheese, ricotta, cottage cheese, sheep's milk cheese, champagne, balsamic vinegar, cream-based dressings such as yogurt or buttermilk, dried fruits, apples, pears, melon, roasted chicken, bacon, shellfish, smoked trout, and herbs such as basil, cilantro, and dill.
HANDLING: Our hydroponic LIVING lettuce is delivered to you with the roots still attached. That means it is still living with the nutrients at their peak. If the root ball it kept moist, you’ll get an extended shelf life of up to 2 weeks in refrigeration
