Parris Island Cos
(Romaine, Cos)

66 days — The heads are uniform in size, tall and erect with interiors that are pale-green to cream. The outer leaves are dark, gray-green in color. Named after the island of the same name off of the South Carolina coast.

Bred by Clemson College's Agricultural Experiment Station, Charleston, South Carolina. It was released in 1951 by the Ferry-Morse Seed Company. Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 500 to 600 seeds.
Q. What is "Cos" and "Romaine" lettuce?

A. It is a type of lettuce with thick leaves on erect plants. Most sources trace the origins of the word to the Greek island of Cos. It is from this island that lettuce is presumed to have been introduced. Others trace it to the Arabic word for lettuce which sounds phonically like "khus."

Another thought is that it reached the West via Rome. In Italian it is called Lattuga romana and in French Laitue romaine. Romaine is the common term in American English.

very reliable and delicious
This is our favorite lettuce from our garden last year. It was slow to bolt and produced well. We even had some strange weather last Spring and a very wet Summer with too little sun and this lettuce still did very well.
