Romaine Lettuce

Leafed lettuce such as romaine, romaine hearts, iceberg lettuce, and green leaf lettuce are all high in price currently. Grow areas are transitioning back to California from Arizona, but it has not been so smooth. Arizona experienced some extreme heat, over 100 degree weather, burning what crop was ready to be harvested. In addition to the burned crops, the California grow areas are having a difficult time getting going due to the heavy rains of late with mildew being an issue. As a result, with less production coming out of each grow area, and the demand remaining high, leaf lettuce is struggling to keep up. Low supply and high demand always equals a higher price.
