Lettuce: Butterhead

This group’s taste is distinguished by a soft texture and buttery feel in the mouth, as if the leaves are half-dressed as they come off the plant. For some, these are the highest form of lettuce. Generally, the plants form well wrapped heads at maturity, with broad midribs and wellblanched hearts.
