Lettuce - Parris Island
The words lettuce and salad are practically interchangeable since most salads are made predominantly with the green crispy leaves of lettuce. However, not all lettuce is created equal. Packed with tender, deep green leaves ‘Parris Island’ is more nutritious than other lettuce and a gourmet favourite.
Determined chefs go out of their way to find the freshest, most tender heads available, unfortunately grocery shoppers are often limited to big heads with tough, strong-tasting leaves. Luckily, it is one of the easiest crops to grow. Seeds germinate quickly and plants grow with little fuss. In most areas, you can grow successive crops in spring and autumn and in mild areas, it can be grown year-round.
Dating back to 1952, this heirloom lettuce is named after the actual Parris Island off the coast of South Carolina. Winner of the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
