Care & Harvest

💡Temperature: Lettuce prefers cooler temperatures (60-70F), and if placed in higher temperatures, it will turn bitter, bolt, and flower early.

 

✂️ Pruning: Check the roots monthly and trim any that are brown or extending past the yPod

 

🥬 Harvest: Lettuce can be picked as individual leaves or harvested as a full head. For ongoing harvest, once the leaves are 4 inches tall, snip the outer leaves an inch above the base of the plant and let the inner leaves continue to grow and mature. Do not cut more than one-third of the plant if you want it to keep growing.

Quick Facts

Monte Carlo is a variety of romaine lettuce that was bred for its compact height and uniform production. Romaine lettuces are said to have originated on the Greek island of Cos and likely started as a Mediterranean weed. Romaine has graced the tables of Persian kings as early as 55 BCE.

Lettuces are particularly high in vitamin A and potassium, which supports blood pressure, cardiovascular health, bone strength, and muscle strength.

Monte Carlo is a compact romaine with a firm texture and sweet flavor. Use Monte Carlo as a replacement for romaine, in Caesar salads, or as carb-free taco shells!
