Forellenschluss lettuce is an heirloom vegetable from Austria. It is one of the prettiest lettuces I've ever grown. Forellenschluss means "speckled like a trout". Also known as Flashy Trout Back.
Lettuce 'Forellenschluss' is especially cold tolerant. It does well in the cool weather of early spring. It also holds up in the heat. This variety won an award for best flavor in the Seed Savers Exchange trials.
Sowing Lettuce 'Forellenschluss' Seeds
Sow lettuce seeds outdoors in early spring, as soon as the ground can be worked. Sow on the surface in shallow furrows, or cover lightly with sand. Thin to 8" apart. Full sun to part shade.
