These sweet tender lettuces were homegrown in my family garden without pesticides or chemicals!
This butterhead lettuce has delicate, loose leaves and lots of flavor, The only downside is that it's usually expensive at local markets. Bibb lettuce known in some places as Boston, butterhead, or limestone lettuce. It is known for its distinctive creamy flavor and crisp, crunchy texture. Bibb leaves tend to be very tender and are best eaten fresh. This type of lettuce grows well in most places. It is often more expensive than other lettuce varieties for this reason, but cooks prize it for its superior flavor and are often willing to splurge in order to add it to their meals or signature dishes.
The leaves of Bibb lettuce tend to be crisp and will hold their shape without wilting for up to a week after they have been cut. They are often said to have a rich, almost buttery flavor that is unlike other lettuces. Most of the taste is concentrated in the leaf stems, or “ribbing,” which gives the leaves their distinctive crunchy texture and, in many ways, holds the shape of the head. Cooks who remove the rib often miss a lot of the reasons why this variety is so popular.
These lettuce do best when planted in the spring or fall and can be easily grown in a window basket or pot!
