Lettuce - Speckles - Lactuca sativa

Hardy annual Heirloom. Apple green leaves speckled with red-brown flecks grow in a loose rosette. This bibb lettuce was brought by the Mennonites to America 200 years ago from Germany and Holland. Forms a blanched heart of yellow-green leaves. Speckles is not all show, enjoy an excellent sweet, buttery, flavor.

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 planting outside, or sow seed directly as soon the soil is workable. Make successive plantings every 10-14 days for a continuous harvest. In mild climates, lettuce can be sown spring through fall.

Harvesting & Storage: Begin harvesting outer leaves as soon as they are large enough and continue until a central stalk begins to form. You can also harvest the entire plant when it's young and crisp.
