Cos Lettuce

Product

Cos Lettuce

Keep lettuce away from ethylene gas-producing fruit such as apples, pears or bananas to retain freshness.

Springing with sweet crunch

It may be one of the oldest members of the lettuce family, but its succulent crunch is one of the freshest flavours around. You can spot Cos Lettuce by its long head of dark green leaves. Sink your teeth in and soak up the delicate flavours of sweetness and tang, offset by crispy crunch and bursting with a refreshing spring of water.

Flavour

Start on the outer leaves for a crispy, crunchy, sweet tangy flavour. The pale inner leaves are more delicate in flavour.

Storage

Wrap your lettuce, unwashed, in a plastic bag and store in your fridge crisper. It will keep for up to five days.

Health Benefits

Thirst quenching thanks to its high water content, and filled with folate and antioxidants for all-round good health.

Picking Perfection

Choose the lettuce with the crispest leaves and freshest face. The stem should be firm and pale green.
