Organic Batavia Lettuce

Description

The core ingredient in most salads and imortalised in the BLT sandwich. Try as a lower calorie wrap with your favourite fillings.

Not just a simple salad ingredient, this leaf has been cultivated for thousands of years as more than a vegetable. Historically, it was used in ancient times and in the Middle Ages as a medicinal treatment.

Wash before eating.

* Like us, not all fruit or vegetables are perfectly formed. We don’t believe in discriminating against misshapen carrots or imperfect potatoes and in fact, love them for their flaws. A less than round apple is still as tasty as their perfectly formed cousins. Unless your produce is clearly defective, please accept them as Nature intended.
