There is a bewildering diversity of lettuce types, with more appearing all the time. Butterheads are soft loose-hearted varieties, crispheads or icebergs are large dense and crunchy, cos types have upright, crisp leaves, and loose-leaf do not make hearts but are gathered as dense leafy heads or individual leaves are picked over a long period. 'Lollo Rosso' has very pretty frilly reddish-pink leaves. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
