A selection from the venerable Austrian heirloom variety “Forellenschluss” for more uniform speckling. Flashy Trout is a beautiful green romaine with stunning splashes of wine red speckles. As tender as romaines get, the apple green speckled hearts rival the butterheads for summer salad sumptuousness (say that five times fast). The variety has been traced back as far as 1793 and has come into current favor thanks to the efforts of Arche Noah, the Austrian heirloom genetic preservation project. A truly beautiful, deliciously sweet and buttery lettuce.
