What are the pros? Texture, large leaves, wraps
What are the cons? Delicate
This lettuce isn't my favorite but it is truly the best lettuce I've ever used for lettuce wraps, as other reviewers have mentioned. I use it in salads mixed with other stuff but it's really best for wraps. The leaves don't 'snap' as easily as with other lettuces. They get very large but stay malleable and thin, allowing you to create burrito-sized lettuce wraps. Doesn't store as well as my other butterhead or cos lettuces. I like the flavor on some days but not others. I enjoyed them harvested as baby greens. The flavor reminds me of dandelion a bit.
In the garden, they get unruly if you don't pluck them often or harvest the whole thing. Big, floppy leaves. Kind of weak as seedlings in cells but took off once put in the soil. If you let the plant get too big and don't harvest enough, the leaves can spill onto the soil and start decaying.
