Jericho Romaine Lettuce

Jericho Romaine Lettuce

$4.00Price

Lactuca sativa

Open Pollinated 

 

Jericho Lettuce is a hefty Romaine with built-in heat tolerance and tip-burn resistance. When I grew for Farmer's Markets this beautiful Romaine was always the first to go. Heads can get large and weigh in at 3# each while retaining a sweet and mild flavour with unbeatable crispness. 

 

Cultivation: Lettuce is easy to grow. Start 5-10 seeds in a small “community pot” and transplant into cells or a flat when they have a few sets of true leaves. Or, you could plant a single seed in each cell and bring up to transplant stage. Lettuce can be direct seeded all year long in improved garden or potting soil. Lettuce loves full sun and consistent watering. Plant 8-12" inches apart so that when they mature the plants will just touch, covering the soil and lessen weeding.

 

Planting Depth: 1/8 - 1/4"

Spacing: 8-12"

Sun: Full/Partial Sun

Days to Maturity: 55-60 days
