Winter Romaine Lettuce (Lactuca sativa var. longifolia)
Winter Romaine Lettuce (Lactuca sativa): this variety of Roman lettuce holds large, fleshy leaves, it is particularly resistant to cold. Its posture is more upright than the one of summer lettuce, its colour is darker.
Very easy to grow, it can be consumed by cutting the leaves and keeping the head so they grow again, or by taking the whole head. Great for everyone, even gardening enthusiasts.
