CERTIFIED ORGANIC! This tasty little mini-romaine grows a densely packed, tight bundle of leaves with upright shape. Dark outer leaves surround a mild tasting, blanched interior. It holds well into summer, and has a strong resistance to aphids and powdery mildew. It has intermediate resistance to Lettuce Mosaic Virus. Choose Starhawk pelleted organic lettuce seeds for reliable, year round romaine lettuce production. Pick individual leaves or wait and harvest full heads. Summer lettuce stays in prime eating condition only a short time, so harvest promptly and keep planting. In fall and winter the plants stay in good eating condition longer.
Pelleted seeds require steady moisture during germination. The seed bed must be kept consistently moist in order to take advantage of the high germination rate. If the clay coating around each seed is allowed to dry out, it can result in poor germination.
Matures in 46 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)
