Details

Forellenschluss, the German name for this Austrian lettuce, translates to "spotted trout." Both the fish and this romaine are beautifully colored and prefer cool living conditions, but that's about all they have in common. Next time you're fishing around for a flashy addition to your plate, try this tender, sweet, painterly romaine as a leaf lettuce.
Days to Maturity 55
Height at Maturity 8 to 12 inches
Width at Maturity 6 to 10 inches
Sow Spotted Trout Lettuce indoors beginning 8-10 weeks before last frost, or direct sow beginning about 4 weeks before last frost. Harvest late spring and summer sowings promptly to beat bolting. Continue sowing until about 2 weeks before first fall frost. Lettuce likes steady (but not excessive) moisture and can become prematurely bitter during dry spells; keep irrigated for best-tasting leaves.
