Just Be Cos.
The name 'Cos' is traced back to the name of the Greek island of Cos, where this lettuce was introduced. It was so popular it reached Rome where it was called lattuga romana meaning 'Roman lettuce' - hence the name 'romaine'. Now drop some knowledge at dinner when you serve that Ceasar Salad (of Julius of Rome fame) made with Parris Island Cos Romaine lettuce. Enjoy large, full bodied heads with medium green, savoyed leaves that are mild to sweet. It holds up well in heat, resists mosiac virus and is slow to bolt. These have high chlorophyll content and are among the most nutritious of all lettuce. Enjoy!
