Paris Island Cos (68 days)

Paris Island was developed by the USDA and Clemson in the early 1950s.  Named for Parris Island off the coast of South Carolina.

Some of the traits that were bred into Paris Island are resistance to tipburn, slow to bolt and tolerance to mosaic virus. 

Paris Island forms upright 10-12" heads that are uniform, medium green, slightly savoyed with a creamy white heart. 

Mosaic virus tolerant

Makes amazing Caesar salads!

Planting Tips:

Sow directly into very fertile, loose soil.  Thin down to final spacing once plants are established.  For best results, plant in spring or fall.  Harvest outside leaves for a continual harvest.  For longer harvest, stagger plantings every 2-3 weeks.

Heat Tolerance:  If you are growing lettuce in the heat, plant them where they will get afternoon shade.  Lettuce is a spring and fall crop in really hot areas.

Harvest Tips: For a continual harvest, sow every 2-3 weeks a new crop if cutting full heads, otherwise harvesting outside leaves will encourage a longer harvest from individual plants.

Seeding Rate:

30,000 plants/acre, aproximately 2 oz.

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
