Red Boston is as mild and likable as green leaf, but with a character and lovely color all its own. It's got as complex a flavor as you'll find in any lettuce. It has a pronounced crisp garden freshness balanced by just a touch of bitterness. The velvety texture that sets Boston apart from its coarser lettuce cousins earns its entry into the "butterhead" lettuce category.
