Emerald Fan Romaine Lettuce
This is a wonderful lettuce. Very fast-growing, with long green Romaine leaves, great Butterhead flavor, silky texture, and vibrant green color. Excellent resistance to extremes of heat and cold. My standby for the first salads of the year, and stands summer heat as well. Easy to wash and prepare, too. Try this and I think you'll be a convert. Another great variety from Jonathan Spero. OSSI open-source pledged 45 days. 300 seeds

It means that the breeder has freely given up her patent rights in order to keep the variety in the public domain forever.
