Organic Flashy Troutback Romaine Lettuce
HEIRLOOM This marvelously speckled romaine has roots deep in 18th Century Germany, her name ‘Forellenschluss’ translating to ‘Speckled Like a Trout’ so aptly. We love her bright flavor, brilliant crunch and notable bolt resistance as both cut-and-come-again baby greens as well as full, open heads of glorious romaine lettuce with a blanched, sweet center. In addition to her bolt-resistance, Organic Flashy Troutback Romaine Lettuce is also remarkably cold-hardy, so we sow her every 3 weeks from snowmelt to early September to surround ourselves with abundance all season long. Under hoops and floating row cover, we’re easily enjoying Flashy Troutback well into December when sown in September.

Flashy troutback romaine came up from last year (I’m in Rochester NY) and looks even better than last year! Huge leaves and keeps on producing. I have just 4 plants and it produces profusely, and hasn’t bolted either.
Flashy troutback thrived in different pots around the patio & worked double duty as an ornamental to hide the stems of leggy petunias.

First seed I ever sewed! Very rewarding to have sprouts, baby leaf harvest, and full heads. Beautiful leaves, great crunch! Planting again this year in my front because it’s so attractive. This is a great one to start with.
