Freckles Romaine Lettuce (Lactuca sativa), so-called for its beautiful spotted red-on-green leaf pattern. Heads up a little less uniform than Parris Island Romaine, but is worth it for the flavor and beauty. We regularly grow this lettuce for our community supported agriculture shares and use it much like green romaine: harvesting baby heads for bagged baby salad mixes and full sized heads later on.
40 days baby, 60 days head. Annual.
Grown at Mano Farm in Ojai, California.
