FORT ROMIE

Fort Romie is our new romaine for warm weather. It has medium to strong bolting resistance and medium tolerance to tip burn. It has a medium green color 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. This variety is corky root and TBS resistant and has shown tolerance to fusarium. It is excellent for fresh, bulk, and heart markets.
