Mucci Farms: ‘lettuce inspire you’

July 26, 2015
Written by
July 26, 2015, Kingsville, Ont. — Mucci Farms has begun harvesting its first harvest of greenhouse-grown Naked Leaf living lettuce.

Hydroponically grown and then harvested with the roots still intact, Naked Leaf is alive and growing when purchased. Added value for both retailer and consumer with their longer shelf life, greater freshness, flavour and leaf colour than those on regular lettuce heads.

The Naked Leaf products are packaged with the roots in tact – the roots rest in a soil plug/small plastic cup. This process provides a lifeline with continued nourishment from the Mucci greenhouse.

The Naked Leaf – Green Butter Head Variety has a delicate crisp, mild sweet flavour. The uses are endless. Not only used for salads, the large, uniform leaf shape makes them great for lettuce wraps.

(Visit the Mucci Farms website for great recipes suggestions.)

Naked Leaf living lettuce will be available in a variety of pack sizes: single, double clamshells as well as individual sleeve with handle. Retail ready displays will also be available.
 
Ontario-grown Naked Leaf living herbs – basil, watercress and arugula – also coming soon (available in 2 oz. and 4 oz. sleeves).

We have been buying the Boston living lettuce for several months now from our local Fortinos store. We love it!
However, today we bought it and for the first time the little black cups that hold the roots was not included. As a result the lettuce is wilting and limp and its drying out. Please continue to use the black up to hold the root, which helps keep the lettuce's freshness. Thank you

Hi, We just tried your Living Lettuce and it is the best ever. Never again for the other stuff we have bot forever. Just wondering, what would be the best way to store the lettuce to keep fresh.
Thanks very much for this product
