Sweetheart has a large frame with excellent plant height and a smooth
tapered midrib. This romaine has a medium dark exterior plant color.
However, during the early heart development it has a very smooth and tapered
interior with the most intense yellow interior or all the newly developed CVS
romaine lines. Because of Sweetheart’s slower plant maturity and plant height
it can be used for Heart, Fresh, or Processor markets. Other characteristics that
will help growers deliver a stronger product to consumers are that it’s Corky
Root resistant, medium strong Bolting Tolerant, medium early heart maturity (2
to 3 days earlier than Green Forest) it is taller than Green Forest by 2” inches
and has strong resistance to low & high temperature abnormalities.
