We are now stocking the striking Lollo Rosso, Lollo Biondi & Oakleaf lettuces from Woodlands Farm, Cheshire. These stunning lettuces are picked & packed in the field in the morning and then delivered to us in the afternoon. Ready for delivery to you the following morning.
Woodlands Farm Lettuces are top quality & very consistent , working with such a great grower makes all of our lives easier.
Lollo Rosso Lettuce: A non-hearting loose-leaf lettuce, Lollo Rosso has fringed and crinkled leaves that are tinged deep red at their ends, with a fairly tender, yet crisp texture. The depth of colour varies with each variety. It contains the antioxidant quercetin, which is believed to reduce the risk of heart disease.
Lollo Biondi: A light green frilly leafed lettuce with a delicate texture and a mild flavour.
Oak Leaf lettuce: Oak Leaf lettuce has very attractive serrated, deep-green leaves tinged with red. The leaves loosely resemble those of a large 'oak' leaf.
