Lettuce, Red Boston (Aylmer) - 1 Head
Dark Red on the outside and yellow on the inside, Boston’s extremely tender leaves form a non-compact head that looks like an opened rose. Unlike its nutrient-starved cousin, the iceberg variety, Boston lettuce is actually an excellent source of Vitamin K, and contains carotenoids such as beta-carotene. Deliciously tender, Boston lettuce has a more refined taste than other lettuces. Its subtle flavour is mostly enhanced by a sweet vinaigrette. It's terrific in salads and sandwiches, or the leaves can be used as a bed for other dishes.
