The baby lettuces come in romaine (Fenberg, Dragoon) and Bibb (red, green) varieties. "The baby romaine make excellent grilling vegetables," Giroux said with a smile.
Johnny's also has a new lettuce variety called Salanova® that is grown to the size of a mature head but has baby sized leaves. The best thing about this variety is that the leaves have the firmness and flavor of fully mature lettuce leaves.
Giroux said Johnny's has new Artisan Tomatoes™ varieties like an organic certified type called Captain Lucky. "They are a striped tomato with stripes that go all the way through the fruit," Giroux said.
