Lettuce - Parris Island Cos - Lactuca sativa

Hardy Annual Heirloom. This romaine lettuce is an old favorite. Upright, dark grey-green 8"-12" head with a neatly folded, slightly savoyed creamy-white heart. This variety has good heart production and vigorous growth. It transplants well under stressful conditions. Tip burn and mosaic-tolerant. It is named after Parris Island, off the coast of South Carolina.

Soil & Water: Lettuce likes full sun except in hot summer climates where it prefers some shade, especially in the afternoon. Add plenty of compost to the soil to encourage rapid growth. Water evenly and moderately to prevent bitterness.

Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 4 weeks before last frost, or sow seed directly as soon as the soil is workable. Make successive plantings every 10-14 days for a continuous harvest.

Harvesting & Storage: You can pick romaine lettuce as soon as it is big enough to use. Or you can pick the outer leaves and allow the inner leaves to continue growing. You can also use the plants pulled while thinning.

Did You Know? Lettuce is a good source of vitamin A.

Great taste and makes a nice head!

I had a great germination rate planting in trays. It transplanted well and made nice heads of lettuce in no time. Our customers love this lettuce.
