Thanks to its firmness and unique shape, this lettuce is ideal as an ‘edible spoon’ variety. This means the leaves are an ideal size for tapas style finger food and characteristically crisp and crunchy with an iceberg bite. Coronita is a crispy romaine style lettuce with good weight from the well-filled hearts. The high quality leaves are sweet and crunchy. Photos courtesy of Rijk Zwaan.
