A fan favorite for salads! Romaine Cimmaron Lettuce grows into large, leafy heads with red to bronze leaves. When consumed as microgreens, romaine lettuce is sweet and tender. These delicate seedlings are best enjoyed in salads and provide a fresh crisp to burgers and other dishes.
Romaine lettuce leaves do not turn bitter in hot weather, and seeds can be grown into microgreens or baby greens relatively easily. Romaine lettuce microgreens also grow relatively quickly and can be harvested in a few weeks. For hydroponics growing, a lower EC (soil salinity) is recommended, as a high EC may result in bitter lettuce leaves.
