Romaine Leaf Lettuce

Romaine leaf lettuce is much more than an excuse to indulge in a little Caesar salad. The dietary fiber and low-carbohydrate content make it a smart choice for those trying to cut back on their carbohydrate intake, especially when used as a replacement for wraps or bread.

Romaine lettuce is ready for harvest once its leaves have a crisp snap to them. If they are still pliable, the crop is not ready to be picked.

Handling Tips

Choose heads of romaine with crisp, fresh leaves without brown stems. Wash and dry thoroughly before storing in the refrigerator for up to one week. Dinner party tip: dunk your romaine leaves in ice water for a few minutes before serving to ensure a crisp bite.

Rinse Before using
Store at 34-38° F
