Lettuce, Florence (Organic)
Lactuca sativa. Green Oak Leaf. 30 days baby; 55 full.
Bright green oak leaf lettuce has the crisp texture of a romaine. The surprising sweet crunch made us think about dividing the oak leaf lettuce category into butter oaks and crisp oaks, but that is another conversation. The dense heads resist bolting in the field, instead they just keep getting bigger. A fabulous lettuce for full heads, cut- and-come-again or salad mixes. We are always surprised at how many great and unique lettuces are out there; Florence was the most impressive of our USDA GRIN accessions grown back in 2013.
