55 days to harvest Lactuca sativa

When Amanda grew Organic Platonic Romaine Lettuce on her farm, she insisted we come to see her row of spectacular lettuce. And Friends, it was spectacular: Large leaves wrap around sweet, crisp hearts, the scalloped edges amplifying your crunch in every salad and sandwich. Divine! Bolt-tolerant in summer and surprisingly hardy into the fall, Platonic romaine has become our favorite for lettuce wraps in any season.

55 days to harvest Lactuca sativa

Description

When Amanda grew Organic Platonic Romaine Lettuce on her farm, she insisted we come to see her row of spectacular lettuce. And Friends, it was spectacular: Large leaves wrap around sweet, crisp hearts, the scalloped edges amplifying your crunch in every salad and sandwich. Divine! Bolt-tolerant in summer and surprisingly hardy into the fall, Platonic romaine has become our favorite for lettuce wraps in any season. Platonic romaine is the genius of millennia of indigenous seedkeeping with the modern vision of Frank Morton; if you’re looking for more incredible and Open Seed Source Initiative (OSSI) Pledged lettuces in your life, his Wild Garden Seeds will transform your world. Thanks, Frank! Thanks, Amanda! And Friend, may you enjoy Platonic romaine in the coming seasons, as well.
