Definition of lollo rosso in English:
Lettuce of a variety with deeply divided red-edged leaves.
- So edible peas and beans will replace sweet peas, lollo rosso will replace lobelia and everything will literally look good enough to eat.
- They include automatic defrost functions, but are not totally frost-free, which means that paying that bit extra for a fridge might just ensure your lollo rosso wilts less.
Italian, from lolla 'husk, chaff' + rosso 'red'.
