    I like red leaf...not bitter. OF course I have a bad sweet tooth so I think many things are bitter so some lettuce is bitter to me that most people think isn't. I also like young spinach...also not bitter. I have a large water trough that I plant like a giant lettuce bowl with 4 or so different varieties. My husband likes them all -

    Ladena is correct. And make sure your lettuce gets enough water, that will also make it bitter tasting. Try it in a container, it's a lot easier to grow and harvest regularly. Lettuce is one veggie that keeps regrowing if you harvest the smaller leaves. Yummy
