An Austrian romaine lettuce, with the excellent taste and texture of a butterhead. The name means "speckled like a trout" and comes from the leaves' distinctive appearance with large splashes of deep red on green.
Sow seed on soil surface and barely cover. Do not allow seedbed to get really dry. Thin gradually, enjoying the thinnings in an early salad or two. In cooler climates lettuce may be grown straight through the summer, as well as spring and fall. Rich, moist soil is necessary. Plants may benefit from a few hours of afternoon shade in hottest summer weather.
