OAKLEAF LETTUCE (45 days heirloom)

Heirloom early 1700’s
This is our favorite for both flavor and ease of harvest because the large bunch of loose and frilly leaves is borne on a single stalk, just the right size for a salad for a family of four. More compact, tighter and fuller than “Salad Bowl,” with similar elongated, lobed leaves. 

500 seeds

PLANTING

Germination: 4-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 60-75 degrees F. Soil above 75 degrees F inhibits germination.

Seed Sowing Depth: ¼ inch deep

Outside Sowing: Spring when soil temperature reaches at least 50 degrees F. Sow 1” apart, thin to 6-12”, depending on the size of lettuce you want, baby to full heads. Keep soil moist during germination. Sow every 2-3 weeks for a longer harvest period. Sow heavy seeded rows every 10-14 days for baby greens using the 1 oz. Pinetree Lettuce Mix.

Starting Indoors:  3-4 weeks before planting outsideSow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot, thinning to one per cell/pot. Provide 60-70 degrees F soil temperatures. Transplant out, 8-12” apart in rows 12” apart.

How much does a packet plant: 25 foot single row  

Harvest: Cut whole heads at base or snipe off individual leaves.  

Tips: Lettuce needs fertile soil for optimum growth. Work in compost or well rotted manure into your soil before planting. Provide adequate, even moisture for the best growth. Mulching helps retain moisture.

    Love this lettuce

    I always add oak leaf to my collection, it is the slowest to bolt pick leaves again all summer. Have grown it in a hollow in Tn, the plains and mountains of Colorado, directly in the soil or in a container. It all grew.
