Romaine Lettuce (Lactuca sativa L. var. longifolia) is a variety of lettuce that grows in a tall head of sturdy dark green leaves with firm ribs down their centers. 

It is more nutritious than iceberg lettuce. In North America, romaine is sold as whole heads or as "hearts" that have had the outer leaves removed and are often packaged together. In British English, it is commonly known as "cos" lettuce, and in North America as "romaine" lettuce. Many dictionaries trace the word cos to the name of the Greekisland of Cos, from which the lettuce was presumably introduced.
