Keep romaine away from drafts to prevent dehydration. Store away from ethylene-producing fruits and ripening rooms.
Follow good rotation practices; first shipments received should be used or displayed first. Because of its shape, romaine can be easily damaged; always handle with care. To crisp romaine before using, plunge in ice water and drain thoroughly.
