Lettuce, Romulus (Organic)
$3.50 – $12.50
Lactuca sativa. Green Romaine. 30 days baby; 60 full.
Big dark-green romaine with a crunchy delicious sweet flavor. The heads are slow to bolt and leaves form tightly without folding over on themselves to blanch a heart that is sweet. Heat tolerant and productive, we recommend this romaine especially for organic farm production, and it’s perfect for gardens, too. Released by Petoseed in 1991 before their infamous mergers. Formerly a PVP, the patent recently expired and this wonderful lettuce is now open source for us all to use freely. Originating from a cross between Valmaine and 24069, a University of Florida lettuce. Selected for tip burn and bolt resistance, large plants, non-cupping leaves and resistance to Lettuce Mosaic Virus (LMV).
