Generally available virtually all year, from the USA and Mexico. Best kept in a plastic lined box, between 32-34 degrees F. You may sprinkle of mist occasionally to maintain or restore crispness. Not only a Latin dance, this ruffled, green leaf lettuce is a great addition to any salad, or makes an attractive garnish. The texture is soft and the flavor smooth. Works will with most all lettuce as its appearance is distinctive and its flavor is not overwhelming.
