Harvesting Romaine Lettuce
Romaine lettuces are tall plants with leaves that form a tight head. The leaves have thick, crispy ribs that give that familiar crunch to a Caesar salad. Often touted as one of the more difficult lettuces to grow, Romaine does take a bit longer to mature when compared to loose leaf or butter lettuces. It is planted in spring so that it matures before any hot weather.
