Lettuce: Cos/Romaine

These are typically upright growers, often folding their leaves together to form a blanched long-hearted head at maturity. Classic cos and romaine types have entire (non-lobed) leaves with a crisp texture, making them popular for salad mix and essential to Caesar salad. These lines have been blurred in varieties that come from crosses to the other types, sometimes lending interesting cos traits to butters, oaks, or crispleaf types.
