ORGANIC Lettuce Cos

Romaine or cos lettuce (Lactuca sativa L. var. longifolia) is a variety of lettuce which grows in a tall head of sturdy leaves with a firm rib down the center. Unlike most lettuces, it is tolerant of heat. The name cos lettuce derives from the Greek island of Kos, where it originated.[1] The day of 22 Germinal in the French Republican Calendar is dedicated to this lettuce.[2]

Cos lettuce - a tasty, succulent lettuce with an elongated head and dark green, long, narrow, crisp leaves - is believed to be the oldest cultivated lettuce.

Cos lettuce has a crispy, crunchy texture and a slightly sweet, tangy flavour. The interior leaves which are paler in colour have the most delicate flavour.

Cos lettuce is mostly comprised of water, so it is extremely low in kilojoules. Lettuce is a good source of folate and antioxidants and contains a small amount of dietary fibre.
