Lettuce, Green Deer Tongue
This beautiful variety steals the show in any salad garden. In Europe, this Austrian heirloom is called Forellenschluss romaine and is one of the most prized of all lettuce varieties. A dark green-leafed romaine splashed with wine-red speckles. Imagine dipping a paintbrush in red paint and giving it a hard shake onto your romaine lettuce and you've got the picture. Your taste buds will love it for its rich, buttery flavor, too.
