Lettuce - Freckles - Lactuca sativa

Hardy Annual Heirloom. This romaine lettuce has green leaves splashed with red. The red darkens as the lettuce matures. Freckles is a tender and long standing heirloom. It makes a beautiful addition to any salad!

Soil & Water: Lettuce likes full sun except in hot summer climates where it prefers some shade, especially in the afternoon. Add plenty of compost to the soil to encourage rapid growth. Water evenly and moderately to prevent bitterness.

Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 4 weeks before transplanting outside, or sow seed directly as soon as the soil is workable. Make successive plantings every 10-14 days for a continuous harvest. In mild climates, lettuce can be sown from spring through fall.

Harvesting & Storage: You can pick romaine lettuce as soon as it is big enough to use. You can pick the outer leaves and allow the inner leaves to continue growing. You can also use the plants pulled while thinning.

Did You Know? Lettuce is a good source of vitamin A.

Growing lettuce in the summer heat It seems unfair—just when we really need lettuce as the foundation of a summer salad, the lettuce wants to pack up and spend its summer at Lake Tahoe (or some other cool spot). Here’s how you… read more»
