Kale, endive, red tipped lettuce, lettuce cores and other vegetation are prohibited. (Improper garnish shall receive a score of one (1) on Appearance).

My question is; what is considered fresh green lettuce? The turn-in box pictures I have seen are not using head lettuce (iceberg) which is what I think of when I see fresh green lettuce.
Fresh green lettuce is leaf tipped lettuce IS leaf lettuce with red tips....that is the most common lettuce used, leaf lettuce

Bibb lettuce
Boston lettuce
green-leaf lettuce
romaine lettuce

There are others, but the more you venture from the stds the more apt your box is to get attention you don't want.
