Wikipedia: Romaine lettuce
Romaine or cos 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. Unlike most lettuces, it is tolerant of heat. In North America, romaine is sold as whole heads or as “hearts” that have had the outer leaves removed and are often packaged together.

17 December 2005, The Globe and Mail (Toronto, ON), “Malty-talented” by Warren Clements, pg. D22:
The gigolo, now in his salad days, was still romainetic, but no longer able tomatover and over again.
