This eye-catching romaine deserves a spot in both the vegetable and the flower garden. Colorful leaves start out green, then fade to a deep red-bronze as they mature. Red Romaine leaves bring a sweet, flavorful crunch to salads and sandwiches. The heads (if allowed to form) are thick enough to grill. Plants are slow to bolt and grow best in full sun, but will tolerate partial shade and even appreciate it in spring in hot climates. Resistant to mosaic virus.

    Grows very well and is very productive. We use the big leaves on the outside of the plant and tend to get multiple harvest from each plant. The taste is excellent and the texture is crisp. It makes an excellent ceasar salad.

    This red romaine lettuce is the best, most productive lettuce I’ve ever grown, and I have grown a lot of different varieties of lettuce over the past 45-50 years. The lettuce was vigorous enough to satisfactorily overcome the “slug test”, crisp and colorful enough to satisfy the “salad test”, and productive and tasty enough to satisfy the “heat test”, even remaining consistent in quality despite bolting in our unusually hot (for the Pacific Northwest) summer! I highly recommend it!
