Mini Garden-Romaine Lettuce For Balcony And Terrace
Romaine lettuce of the Mini Garden series for balcony and terrace cultivation allows you to enjoy young, vitamin-rich leaves from your own culture. You may even harvest rich crops of leaves grown from seeds available in our store from your balcony box! Romaine lettuce (Lactuca sativa var. romana) is a source of minerals, such as calcium, potassium, iron, magnesium and zinc, and contains twice as much provitamin A and vitamin C as butterhead lettuce. It also low-calorie and digestible. 100 g of romaine lettuce leaves contain only 17 kcal, what makes them a great (and nutritious!) addition to a weight-reduction diet. Young leaves of the romaine lettuce may be added to fish, meat and cheese salads. They would also enrich every sandwich and casserole.
Romain lettuce in the field cultivation develops long, rather compact and abundant rosettes. Sown for young leaves it will produce a loose rosette consisting of soft, bright green, juicy leaves that are slightly firmer than the butterhead lettuce foliage. Every soil for pot plants and herbs – permeable, water retaining, with slightly acidic or neutral reaction – would suit this plant.
