Your salads will never be boring again with Minnesota Grown lettuces! Greens and lettuces come in all sorts of colors, flavors and varieties. Lettuce is grouped into four categories romaine, butterhead, looseleaf, and crisphead. Collards, endive, kale, spinach, Swiss chard, arugula, cress, mache, mustard greens: the list of other specialty greens is endless! Ask your farmer about their variety next time you visit a farm or market. In order to have the tastiness and freshest lettuce and greens, you should wash and cut lettuce right before eating it and remember—don’t store lettuce with apples, pears, or bananas. These fruits release a gas that causes greens/lettuce to get brown spots and wilt quickly.
