Lettuce, Cerise Oak Leaf (Organic)
Lactuca sativa. Red Oak Leaf. 30 days baby; 55 full.
An excellent red oak leaf and great for salad mix. Vigorous and slow to bolt with good, sweet flavor, especially for a red lettuce. Fairly resistant to downy mildew. Dark-red pigmented anthocyanins fight the diseases of cold, wet weather and provide good color contrast in mixes. Cerise means “cherry” in French. An English commercial variety that we found in Ireland with Madeline McKeever of Brown Envelope Seeds.
