Green Batavia lettuce is crisp and has a sweet or bitter smell when the stalk is scratched, depending on the specific variety. The leaves also have a mildly sweet or semi-bitter flavor, and the bitterness often occurs in maturing greens versus young greens.
We at the PPT farms encourage natural farming and do not use any synthetic chemical based pesticides or fertilisers.
Green Batavia Lettuce contains vitamins A, C, K, and folate.
