Fort Romie is our new romaine for warm weather. It has medium to strong bolting resistance and medium tolerance to tip burn. It has enhanced tolerance to fringe burn during warm windy days in the Salinas Valley and exhibits a large frame with a 12” to 14” plant height. This romaine has an extremely smooth midrib and wide leaf petiole with a straight tapered butt shape making for an impressive pack at harvest time. Fort Romie is corky root resistance, TBS resistant, and has high fusarium tolerance. It is excellent for fresh, bulk, and heart market plantings.
