Romaine lettuce is perhaps the second most recognizable and ubiquitous of all lettuces types, second only to Iceberg. The Romaine hearts are essentially the inner blanched leaves of the romaine plant. They constitute colors of cream, yellow and lime green along the ribs of the leaves. Romaine hearts are chosen for their crunchy, thick-walled succulent leaves.
Romaine hearts are available year-round.
