Organic Plato II Romaine Lettuce
Quintessential romaine with a glorious crunch, Plato II is perfect for summer heat, resisting bitterness and slow to bolt. Each ~10 inch head has a sweet, crisp center that is the most succulent treat! Plato II also has more resistance to Downy Mildew than many lettuces.
Though Plato II is one of our go-to summer lettuces, we’re delighted how well they grow into the fall, sweetening with the autumn chill.
A beloved variety from Frank Morton, Plato II will nourish us for many generations to come. This is how ‘heirlooms’ are born, Friends! We’re grateful for the countless generations of indigenous seedkeepers who have saved lettuce seed for millennia and we are thrilled to share this fresh selection of a delectably disease resistant romaine, both delicious and abundant, with you ~
