Mucci Farms Welcomes its New Greenhouse, Ontario-Grown Naked Leaf Living Lettuce Harvest
KINGSVILLE, ON - Mucci Farms’ new greenhouse is just days away from its first harvest of fresh, Ontario-grown Naked Leaf living lettuce.
Naked Leaf products are hydroponically grown and then harvested with the roots still intact and resting in a soil plug/small plastic cup. This means they’re still alive and growing when purchased. Both retailers and consumers benefit from the longer shelf-life, greater freshness, flavor, and leaf color than those on regular lettuce heads, according to a press release.
Mucci Farms says its Naked Leaf – Green Butter Head Variety has a delicate crisp, with a mild sweet flavor. It’s available in several different pack sizes, including single, double clamshells, as well as individual sleeve with handle. Retail ready displays will also be available.
Be on the lookout for Ontario Grown Naked Leaf Living Herbs, coming soon from Mucci Farms. Varieties that will be available include Basil, Watercress, and Arugula available in 2 oz. and 4 oz. sleeves.
Whether they’re used for salads, lettuce wraps, or other recipe ideas, Mucci Farms’ website offers a number of creative ways to utilize Naked Leaf living lettuce’s large, uniform leaves for your next meal.
