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.

 Brown Goldring (Lettuce)  Brown Goldring 
This is our least appreciated, best flavored lettuce. In replicated studies over two years that included blind taste tests by 28 teenage Botany students, 80% rated this (unfortunately named) variety as “sweet,” and less than 10% rated it bitter. None of the other of the 20 tested varieties came close to this ranking. One student suggested renaming the variety “Rocket Shine”... pricing and more info...

A dark red spring lettuce with tapered cos-like leaves forming loose heads at maturity. Very buttery texture and thick leaves. Good reports from Texas to the Olympic Peninsula.

It had to happen; a contender arises to challenge its parentage.
