This heirloom romaine lettuce got its name from Parris Island, South Carolina where it was bred in 1952. It makes substantial deep green, upright leaves that taper down to a white core. It grows about 12 inches tall. It's resistant to Lettuce Mosaic Virus (LMV) and Tipburn (browning of the edges of the leaves).

Growing Instructions

Direct sow shallowly in spring, or start indoors and transplant out. For late summer plantings, start seeds indoors or in a cool location, as temperatures above 22°C (72°F) can hinder sprouting. Space plants about 10-12 inches apart for full size heads.

Shipping in Canada 

We ship seeds in Canada via regular letter mail, which is an untracked service, and usually takes 1-2 weeks to arrive. Larger bulbs and plants are sent via tracked flat rate box.

 

Shipping to the US

We ship all US orders by tracked packet and they usually take two weeks to arrive.

According to the USDA, most seeds require an import permit to be brought into the US and the permit is free and useable for multiple orders/years. The package will list the contents as "Garden Seeds". In our experience shipping seeds over several years, most small orders will make it across the border without issues, but occasionally they will be held at US Customs. 

It is your responsibility to ensure you have the required import permit and Cicada Seeds will not be responsible for any orders held or confiscated by US customs.
