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.
