Description

Romaine lettuce is medium to large in size with an elongated shape and stiff, upright leaves. The thick heads are loosely connected to a central blanched base and the leaves are broad with many folds and creases. The outer leaves are dark green rib in the center, and as the leaves grow smaller in the center, they lose color almost fading to white. Romaine lettuce is crisp, succulent, and crunchy with a mild, slightly bitter taste.
