Lettuce Parris Island Cos

Lettuce Parris Island Cos


This variety boasts all the merits of a commercially bred variety, but the crisp and sweetly scrumptious leaves say heirloom. Parris Island Cos is a Romaine lettuce that is beloved by growers, especially on the Eastern Seaboard, where it was originally introduced by Ferry Morse in 1951. Super uniform, upright leaves, observed disease tolerance and moderate bolt resistance were the growing traits selected at Clemson College Agriculture department when it was bred for their South Carolina climate. The tender crisp leaves with delicate white hearts and the perfectly folded centers for scooping dips or holding dressings have won the hearts of gardeners for generations.
