Truchas is a strikingly red, smaller statured romaine type. These breathtaking plants have intense crimson leaves with brilliantly contrasting green ribs and veins. The allure does not stop at the plants appearance. A delight to eat, Truchas is very refined with melt-in-your-mouth texture and utterly bitter-free flavor. The cylindrical plants are upright, growing to 12 inches wide and 7 inches tall with razor-smooth leaves.
