Our leaf lettuce is grown year round by the Mennonites farmers from Val Gagne, ON.
Lettuce, Leaf (bag)
Lettuce needs moisture and airflow to stay crisp, but too much of either causes sad, wilted greens. Depending on how long you’d like to store your lettuce, you can choose to store it as a full head of lettuce or individual lettuce leaves.
To store a full head of lettuce, wrap in a damp paper towel and put the head inside a plastic bag. Store in the refrigerator.
f you’re storing individual lettuce leaves, spin them dry after washing and place in a lettuce keeper in the fridge. A container is best to avoid bruising and bacteria buildup. You can also use a plastic bag if you keep a corner open for airflow, or you can store them stemless and wrapped in a wet paper towel in your crisper drawer. Make sure to add a few paper towels to absorb excess moisture and replace the paper towels every few days if they get too damp.
