This beautiful and delicious heirloom comes from Austria, with wine speckled bright green leaves (its name means “speckled trout back”). It does very well in the cold, can be planted early in the spring, and holds up well in summer. Absolutely delicious flavor. One of our favorite lettuces. Also known here as Speckled Trout Back Lettuce or "Freckles".
Cool season crop. Direct seed outside when soil can be worked in spring, soil temperature 35-45 ℉. Plant 1/4" deep, 2" apart, thin when leaves touch.
shallow-rooted plant likes rich soil and plenty of moisture
stagger plantings by 2 weeks for a steady supply
as summer approaches plant smaller amounts more often in shade or on north side of tall plants like sunflowers
