This "Yugoslavian red" butter lettuce is an heirloom variety, known for developing leaves that are a beautiful bright green dappled with burgandy. With extremely tender, juicy leaves, it's no wonder why this lettuce variety is commonly packaged in a clamshell at the grocery store. Its tender leaves bruise easily during transport, but luckily you won't have to worry about that. You can enjoy the sweet, buttery crunch of this gourmet lettuce straight from your Nanofarm.
Often, butter lettuce is served without dressing, because its sweetness naturally balances its own mild bitterness. Since the leaves are large and strong, they can be used as wraps to make low-carb sandwiches.
Butter lettuce is a good source of Thiamin, Riboflavin, Calcium, Magnesium and Phosphorus, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Folate, Iron, Potassium and Manganese.
