Details

Oakleaf lettuce was introduced in the 1770s and was known at that time as American Oak Leaved. Just like the name implies, Oakleaf has deeply lobed leaves that form a tight cluster. The unique shape really adds to salads. This green-leafed heirloom is bolt resistant and does well in warm weather, later into the season than many others, without getting sappy and bitter.
