Middle Eastern. This lettuce is already popular in the hot, dry areas of the US. It was bred to grow in the deserts of Israel. Jericho is very bolt resistant and remains crisp and sweet in the hottest of weather. This cos type provides a large, dense head.
Germination: 4-10 days
Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 60-75 degrees F. Soil above 75 degrees F inhibits germination.
Seed Sowing Depth: ¼ inch deep
Outside Sowing: Spring when soil temperature reaches at least 50 degrees F. Sow 1” apart, thin to 6-12”, depending on the size of lettuce you want, baby to full heads. Keep soil moist during germination. Sow every 2-3 weeks for a longer harvest period. Sow heavy seeded rows every 10-14 days for baby greens using the 1 oz. Pinetree Lettuce Mix.
Starting Indoors: 3-4 weeks before planting outside. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot, thinning to one per cell/pot. Provide 60-70 degrees F soil temperatures. Transplant out, 8-12” apart in rows 12” apart.
How much does a packet plant: 25 foot single row
Harvest: Cut whole heads at base or snipe off individual leaves.
Tips: Lettuce needs fertile soil for optimum growth. Work in compost or well rotted manure into your soil before planting. Provide adequate, even moisture for the best growth. Mulching helps retain moisture.

Disappointed in the germination rate compared to other heat resistant lettuces. Will try again though cuz I'd like this one to work.
I've also been growing Jericho romaine lettuce for about 15 years, and it is the tallest and crispiest and delicious lettuce and lasts from summer into fall.
I've grown Jericho for about 15 years. It has consistently been the best lettuce in the garden. tall, tight heads, great flavor and really resistant to bolting even in the heat of summer.
