The lettuce ‘Speckled Trout’ is an old Austrian Heritage variety of Cos lettuce. This lettuce is very cold hardy and slow to bolt so can be cropped for longer. Unlike other lettuce, it has unusual and attractive 'splashes' of red on the bright green leaves give rise to the name 'Speckled Trout', as it resembles the skin of the aforementioned fish. Easy to grow this heritage variety will create eye-catching beds and borders. Height 21-30cm (8-12"); spread 21-30cm (8-12").
Harvesting late April - October, it’s one of the sweetest Cos lettuces available, with crisp leaves which are fantastic in a Caesar salad. Adds a 'splash' of colour to salads and sandwiches. Thinnings can also be added to salads or sandwiches or replanted elsewhere in the garden.
The Speckled Trout is included in the Rob Smith Heritage Range that is dedicated to his love for gardening and allotment growing. So why not try a lettuce variety that has stood the test of time, a must-have variety for any keen gardener.

Organic Garden Catalogue strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
