Cimmaron is a big, deep-red heirloom dating back to the 1700s. Heads grow 26-30cm (10-12″) tall! Individual leaves are easy to pick and hold well in salads. Plant Cimmaron romaine lettuce seeds at two to three week intervals from March to August, as some will hold in the garden through a mild winter. The baby leaves look wonderful in salads and the deep red colour is accompanied by superb flavour and crisp, tender texture. There’s a reason this lettuce has been around for centuries – it is a reliable, high quality workhorse that is virtually impervious to bolting.
Matures in 60-70 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)
