Romaine lettuce is so simple and unassuming that you might not notice it—until you forget to ask for it on your burrito. We receive whole heads of lettuce fresh from the fields, then wash and cut them by hand every morning into two different sizes (salad size and taco size, to those in the biz) thereby ensuring that the lettuce is as fresh, crisp and delicious as possible.
You know how some names have fascinating etymologies that make you think, "Wow, I never would have guessed?" Romaine isn't one of them. It got its name because it's believed to have reached the West via Rome. Too bad it didn’t cross Jupiter instead.
