Plant Information
A summertime staple for garden to table, Oakleaf leaf lettuce is a classic that's been around for centuries. It's a heavy yielder and can be planted in succession every two weeks so your crops will be continuous all throughout the season. It's a lover of cooler climates, making it a hardy choice for gardens in the more northern areas, yet it's also heat tolerant so it's happy in the south as well. This also means Oakleaf is a great option if you're getting a later start on your planting. The heads of Oakleaf lettuce look like large rosettes, each one growing as wide as 15 inches and producing many layers of tightly wrapped lush greenery resembling oak leaves. The leaves can be picked as soon as they're large enough to use (about 28 days for baby leaves), and you can continue to cut them fresh for salads, sandwiches, and more all summer long. For optimal freshness and flavor, pick your leaves in the morning when they're cool, crisp, and full of moisture.
