A variety of different Lettuce seeds for sale at Seeds and Plants South Africa. Types of lettuces include looseleaf, butterhead, crisphead, and romaine.
Crisphead lettuce has a round head which is made up of tightly packed, crunchy leaves. Butterheads are also round, but the leaves are more loose and have a smoother texture than crisphead lettuce leaves. Romaine lettuce has a thick white rib. Looseleaf lettuces are loosely gathered, growing as a rosette, enabling the grower to just remove the leaves rather than harvest the entire plant.
