Batavia Starfighter lettuce

Batavia Starfighter lettuce

Batavia Lettuce is classed variously as a loose-leaf lettuce, or semi-heading lettuce. In hot weather, the lettuce is slow to bolt, and its crisp leaves that are like Romaine retain their crispness even in hot growing conditions. It’s one of the favourites in France, owing both to its taste and its good shelf life after harvesting.
