Description: Restoration Romaine is a hardy disease free green romaine for production and leaf-head protection. Restoration Romaine’s innovative curled leaf tip now protects from leaf damage common to other romaine heads during shipping and handling. Its signature spoon shaped leaf tip also helps customers remember Restoration Romaine and make it fly off the shelf. Upright easily harvestable by hand or mechanically. Bottom leaves easily clean off, perfect mid-size for market or multi-head bagging. The highest quality romaine for field-to-customer distribution. Good heat and drought tolerance. Thinner ribs and not as woody textured as most romaines. Just slightly open head allows for better air circulation, reduced pests and optimal individual leaf texture. Ideal for organic field conditions and cultivation. Bred by Chuck Burr of Restoration Seed for reliability, minimized leaf damage and a crunchy sweet flavor your customers will love the most.
