About our cos lettuce

Cos lettuce, also known as “Romaine lettuce,” is a popular variety of lettuce that originated in the Mediterranean region, including Italy. It is believed to have been grown for centuries and has become a staple in various cuisines around the world. While the term “Romaine lettuce” is often associated with the United States, where it is widely grown and consumed, this lettuce variety has its roots in Italy and other parts of the Mediterranean.

This lettuce is a good source of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin A, vitamin K, and folate. It’s also low in calories and carbohydrates, making it a popular choice for those seeking a healthy and low-calorie option.

In Italy, it is often grown in temperate climates, particularly during the cooler seasons of spring and autumn. Its preference for cooler temperatures and resistance to bolting (going to seed prematurely) makes it ideal for these growing conditions.
