Red Oak leaf lettuce have elongated, lobed and loosely serrated leaves similar to those of oak leaves. The vibrant burgundy stained leaves form a semi-tight rosette, growing upward and outward. Red Oak Leaf 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 Leaf lettuce is available in the spring and early summer months.
Lettuce is categorized into six different types, also known as subspecies or botanical varieties. The six types of lettuce are crisphead (iceberg and Batavian), Romaine, butter, Latin, leaf and stem. All lettuce types except for iceberg occur in red and green leaf form. Butterhead lettuces are known for their compact heads, their leaf texture and their mellow flavor. There are several Red Oak lettuce varieties, varying in shape, frill, color and flavor. Some variety names include Cobham, Oscarde, Danyelle, Paradai, Red Coral and Vulcan.
