Rouge D'Hiver Romaine/Cos Lettuce Seeds (Organic)

Dual-Toned Delicacy

Rouge d'Hiver Romaine, also known as Rouge d'Hiver Cos Lettuce, originates from France and stands as an esteemed cultivar admired for its robust growth, striking appearance, and flavorful characteristics.

This variety is celebrated for its resilience and adaptability. Its aesthetic allure lies in the elongated, upright heads with rich green outer leaves and red-tinged, slightly savoyed inner leaves. This dual-toned appearance grants it a visually appealing quality in gardens and on plates.

The taste of Rouge d'Hiver Romaine is notably flavorful, offering a harmonious blend of sweet and slightly bitter notes. Its crisp texture adds a satisfying crunch to salads and various culinary creations.

When planting from seed, Rouge d'Hiver Romaine thrives in fertile, well-draining soil with good moisture retention. Sow the seeds in shallow furrows and cover lightly with soil.

Planting & Care

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 transplanting outside, or sow seed directly as soon as the soil is workable. Make successive plantings every 10-14 days for a continuous harvest. In mild climates, lettuce can be sown from spring through fall.

Harvesting & Storage: Begin harvesting outer leaves as soon as they are large enough and continue until a central stalk begins to form, which signals the end of the harvest period. You can also harvest the entire plant when it's mature but still young and crisp.
