Inventory, 24 ct : 0
Green Oak Leaf lettuce has the appearance of Oak leaves - linear, lobed and loosely serrated. The leaves form a semi-tight rosette at the base, growing upward and outward. Green Oak Leaf lettuce has a buttery texture and an incredibly mellow, nutty and sweet flavor, which rarely becomes bitter, even in hotter climates.
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. Oak leaf lettuce is a type of butter lettuce. Butter lettuces are known for their compact heads, their quilted leaf texture and their mellow flavor. They are also great short season varieties as well as more heat-tolerant than crisphead lettuce.
