Parris Island Cos Lettuce
Certified Organic Seed
Perseveres through heat and drought.
Parris Island is in coastal South Carolina, in a climate that is not all that favorable for lettuce cultivation. This variety, which is named after the spot, puts up with the strains of heat and drought and not-so-perfect soils. Its upright romaine habit keeps it chugging into summer without bolting. A great choice, too, for early-summer sowings intended for baby-leaf harvest.
