Lettuce, Romulus (Organic)
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 so-called “protection” recently expired and this wonderful lettuce is now in the public domain. 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.
Seed produced by Avoca in Corvallis, Oregon.
