The Lettuce Romaine Freckles, 'Lactuca sativa', is an Heirloom Romaine with maroon splotches that handles heat well. Make a non-traditional Caesar salad with this gorgeous romaine. This Heirloom is both heat tolerant and very tasty. The Austrians call Freckles "forellenschuss" which translates as "trout, self enclosing", indicating it's a speckled romaine. Lettuce is a cool season annual. Successive plantings can produce lettuce spring through fall. Plant in early spring, 3 to 4 weeks before the average last frost date, and successive plantings thereafter every 3 weeks until 5 weeks before fall frost. Lettuce likes light, fertile, moist, and well drained soils. They will grow in light shade. Lettuce grows well near cabbage, beets, carrots, chives, garlic, and onion.
Scientific Name : Lactuca sativa
