Rouge D’Hiver Romaine Lettuce is a French heirloom variety meaning "Red of Winter" for its ability to thrive in cool conditions (does not do as well in extreme heat). The leaves are dark-red to bronze on the tips and dark green at the base. It has a sweet butter texture and is delicious as baby leaves. Use to dress up salads, sandwiches, wraps, spring rolls, sides or as a base for fruit and cheese trays.
