Lettuce: Leaf

The more natural type, characterized by open spreading form that is generally loose, as opposed to tightly folded or heading. Leave are commonly oak-shaped or entire, with various combinations of smooth or ruffled margins, savoyed or rumpled surface, with crisp to soft textures. Reputed to be the “best for ya” since the leaves get more light, “looseleafs” are often the most fully pigmented types for the same reason.
