Philadelphia seedsman, Bernard McMahon, sold
this 18th-century Romaine lettuce in 1804. The
leaves are speckled with a bright reddish-brown
variegation that is highly ornamental. Spotted
Aleppo is best sowed in very early spring, or in
late summer for a fall and winter crop. Sow seed
directly in good garden soil in a sunny exposure,
and thin seedlings to 8" to make room for the
large, loose heads. 43 days to maturity.
Approximately 100-150 seeds per pack.
