Emerald Oak Lettuce (Lactuca sativa) is a very tidy and compact jewel green oakleaf that matures into a dense buttery-hearted head. Leaves are perfect salad size from either baby or mature heads. From a cross between Blushed Butter Oak and Deer Tongue, this variety captures some of the best taste and texture qualities of each.
The brilliant green, oak-shaped leaves of this early, compact variety form a tight, compact rosette with a soft buttery texture, crispy ribs and sweet flavor for salads and sandwiches. Succession plant at close spacing in spring and fall to keep a constant supply.
Days to maturity: 55
