Lettuce / Red Romaine
Be the master of your Romaine.
Romaine 101: Romaine lettuce is known as "cos lettuce" as the word cos is traced back to the name of the Greek island of Cos, from which the lettuce was presumably 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 pair your Heirloom Red Romaine Lettuce with Parris Island Cos for a stunning salad. This variety has spoon shaped leaves and leaves that start green and end in a deep rich burgundy color. It looks great but is packed with nutritional goodness. 500 seeds. Enjoy!
