Long, crisp-textured, 

distinctly flavored leaves. Tolerates dry, hot weather well, 

slow to go to seed. Romaine (or Cos) makes a tall head with crunchy midrib.

Likes a moderately good, loose, well-drained soil. Water regularly. All of our varieties are self-blanching and require no tying up.Try it like kale for an equally delicious, nutritious smoothie.
