Butterhead Lettuce (Boston)
Butterhead lettuce is generally grown to full-size heads and receives its name from the sweet buttery flavor and delicate texture of the large, ruffled outer leaves. Cutting into the lettuce reveals a soft, folded, and blanched heart. Boston lettuce is a well-renowned Butterhead type, featuring soft and smooth, light-green leaves and big heads.
