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.
