Lactuca sativa var. crispa
This very old Perpetual Lettuce, already mentioned in 1686, has been rediscovered as a gourmet speciality. It creates a dense rosette of glossy, medium green, thin and tender leaves. They are deeply cut, resembling oak-leaves and never get bitter. Oakleaf stands the heat of summer well, is slow to bloom and yields a large crop. It is grown as baby-leaf aswell. A portion contains about 300 seeds. MOFGA-certified seed. See under Info etc. - Ecologically grown seeds.
