Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars
sorry to say but planted a bunch of these in containers, 1/4 inch deep in 70 degree controlled environment and got about 5 % germination. not so good.
While having grown Jericho lettuce for 5-6 years, we had to find a new source. First planting in our greenhouse is nearly ready to harvest. This is good as it coincides with the CDC recommending all romaine purchased commercially be tossed (AZ grown, E coli issues). We are not tossing our homegrown! Best Romaine we've ever found, and enjoy it year around thanks to our greenhouse. Though we do prefer the taste when grown outdoors in our garden.
Have grown Jericho from Sustainable Seed for a few years and it's one of the best. Holds up pretty well in our harsh, hot late Springs and early summers (til July 1st). It's a sweet and crunchy romaine that we generally pick as a "cut and come again" before the heads form.
