Lettuce, Gem Green

We first encountered gem lettuce in our local supermarket as part of a 4-pack of petite lettuce from Artisan®. Gem lettuce grows in broad compact heads with wide leaves, a crunchy texture with a sweet flavor, which makes a nice addition to salads. It also comes in a red variety. We could not find any specific nutritional information for gem lettuce, other than that a 3-oz. serving provides: 10 calories, 2 grams of carbohydrate (less than 1 gram of which is fiber), 1 gram of protein, provides 100% of daily vitamin A, 10% vitamin C, 2% calcium, and 4% iron.
