What types of lettuce are grown commercially here?


Head, leaf, romaine, and escarole.


Where is lettuce most commonly grown in Hillsborough County?


South County.


How many acres of lettuce are planted in Hillsborough County?


About 15 acres.


How much lettuce is harvested in Hillsborough County?


More than 400,000 pounds.
