As its name suggests, Red Oak leaf lettuce has the appearance of aging ruby oak leaves - elongated, lobed and loosely serrated. The vibrant burgundy stained leaves form a semi-tight rosette, growing upward and outward. Red Oak lettuce has a buttery texture and an incredibly mellow, nutty and sweet flavor. It is known for its sweetness, which may be an even more memorable quality than its attractive foliage.
Red Oak lettuce is available year-round.
Red Oak lettuce is a variety of Lactuca sativa that is named for its burgundy-red, oak-shaped leaves. There are several Red Oak lettuce varieties, varying in shape, frill, color and flavor.
