Romaine Hearts rows are planted extra close together to help the Lettuce head grow tall and tight. The heads are cut at the base of the plant and outer leaves are trimmed off, they’re immediately packaged into the 3 pack sleeves or 6 count club packs out the field (there is no “romaine heart factory”), rushed to the cooler and shipped around the country. How fresh is that! They are excellent for making crunchy salads or blending in with more tender bitter baby greens to add texture. Find creative ways to prepare Romaine Hearts here.
