I often buy mixed, or perhaps the one I buy more than that is baby Cos.

I also love arugala or baby rocket.

I do not like the bitter purple one, nor do I often buy the ordinary lettuce unless I am wrapping food in these leaves
by Finy
No I don't like the bitter purple ones too! I end up throwing them out...yuck.

I don't eat a lot of lettuce, have it out sometimes, love spinach salad leaves
by Fran
I only buy those in bags.
Like wild rocket or spinach.
I love the ones from Woolies the best.
Some even have a slither of carrot in them and beetroot.Makes it interesting.
I stopped buying lettuce heads years ago, they just seem to be full of water...and tasteless, for me.

We usually buy iceberg lettuce although I am becoming fond of other varieties, as these seem to be more often served in restaurants.
I don't buy lettuce - we have spinach in our salads so I buy spinach every week
by AJ
The one I buy will depend on what I am eating it with and what mood I'm in when buying it! I love all kinds of lettuce and salad leaves :)
I like cos and baby rocket
I will only rarely buy lettuce much any more, as I prefer to grow the interesting small varieties in a huge tub,so I can just pick the fresh leaves as I need them!!! I love the variety available when growing these colourful and sweet leaves. I began buying the seedlings at Bunnings about 6 years ago,as they sell mixed punnets instead of all being the one type. I did buy a gorgeous sweet Iceberg lettuce last week as it was only 95 cents for a huge ,well-formed one. My neighbour who also lives alone,will often share a lettuce with me as neither of us ever really need a whole one.
I love iceberg lettuce, arugala and rocket. But I also use a lot of baby spinach. I had Cos only once and found it bitter (?) , so I did not buy it again.

I mostly buy iceburg lettuce. Romaine is one I like but do not buy very often. Leaf lettuce is somewhat bitter so I tend to avoid it.

None. Frightened of choking. Nearly did one day with those leafs looking like a tiny branch. It was the stem that got stuck in my throat!
I like frilly lettuce. I find iceberg lettuce is really boring for salads, but it's the best sort of lettuce for a sandwich.
ICEBERG! Aussies Love Iceberg Lettuce - not dry weeds!
iceberg only, if they are exoensive I buy a cabbage and make coleslaw, I will not buy lettuce of any type packaged in a bag. that also goes for any vegetable.
Rocket, our budgies love it as well.
Cos lettuce is my absolute fave. I eat it by the leaf, I put it in cheese and lettuce sandwiches, I use it for green smoothies and I love how well it keeps in the fridge. I hate that purple on too, Finy! Radicchio. Yuk.
by Rice
purple one, not on, sorry.
by Rice
I buy whats on sale bu† i do like the frilly ones
It depends what kind of salad I'm making! Usually baby spinach leaves is the go to.

If I want a crunchy sort of salad then I buy the baby gem lettuce!
i haven't bought a lettuce in years. Like Finy,
I usually buy a bag of mixed & a bag of rocket.
