Hydroponic lettuce is not grown in soil, but in a nutrient rich liquid. These small heads of lettuce have a buttery, spinach-like texture and delicate taste. Unlike other types of lettuce, the outer leaves do not need to be discarded.
Use as you would any type of lettuce. Tear and use to make salads, or add to sandwiches and soups.
Good source of vitamin A.
Choose heads with bright green leaves that radiate uniformly from the center. Avoid leaves that appear dried or wilted, and that are yellow in color or have brown spots. Store in plastic container with roots down. Keep refrigerated 3-5 days. If the roots appear dry, add some water to the container to keep them moist.
