Syrian Green Lettuce

         
 
4 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
We are pleased to list rare Syrian heirloom with lush green leaves and crisp, crunchy texture. In growth habit it is considered a Cos or romaine type due to its upwardly spreading leaves which reach a length of 6 to 7 inches. Overall head size is about 8 inches across, thus for best shaped plants, space them 10 inches apart. Very slow to bolt in hot weather, this lettuce will do well in the South and Southwest.

Review:

Grew this for the first time in our Spring garden. Sowed seeds in small pots indoors and moved out later than intended to large pots outside. I did keep all my various greens under a shade cloth, to help protect from the hot afternoon sun. I noticed the plants were starting to bolt and taste more bitter about 3 weeks ago, so I pulled them out. Figure a lot of the problem was our extra hot late Spring temps (more like what is usual for mid-July). And maybe also because of how long it had been since the original seed germinated. This and the Landis Winter lettuce were the best of all the lettuce types grown this year, and they performed surprisingly well with our exceptional heat. We picked lots of leaves, which tasted great, even alone straight out of the garden. The plants produced increasing amounts of leaves, and the leaves became longer as the plants matured. This was a very successful lettuce, with a terrific flavor. I will grow it for the Fall garden, and maybe sooner.

Review:

To date, I have only grown two varieties of lettuce--a romaine from H.D. and this Syrian lettuce. When temperatures rose to 80 , the H.D. romaine became bitter, but the Syrian did not and remained pleasant (slightly sweet). With daily watering, the Syrian lettuce grew steadily until it formed a large full head that remained for a month through upper 90s and a short time of 100 degree heat. Eventually it started to flower and thus became bitter, but I'm guessing that it was just time/age--not premature bolting from the heat. Meanwhile, I have younger heads growing in a raised bed; we've had about two weeks of upper 90s (in April), but they keep growing happily while the romaine is flowering now. The texture of both, however, is much more fibrous than anything I've eaten from a store. Not a bad thing in my book (fiber is good for health), just different and worth mentioning for those who've never grown lettuce.

What are the pros? Was slower to bolt then most

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

It grew quickly and took the heat well. Almost as well as my bronze beauty. My hsband really enjoyed it, and liked having lettuce a month longer as it didn't bolt as fast as many do.

What are the pros? Early germination in January

What are the cons? None yet

Review:

I'll have to edit my review after they mature, but I want to report that they germinated about 5 days after planting in Phoenix, AZ on January 11, 2018. They get about half a day of sun on my patio in a container. It's only January 24 now--too soon to say more at this point. They still have just one tiny set of leaves.
