Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Oakleaf lettuce was introduced in the 1770s and was known at that time as "American Oak Leaved".
Just like the name implies Oakleaf has deeply lobed leaves that form a tight cluster. The unique shape really adds to salads.
Flavor is not sacrificed when the summer heat begins as Oakleaf does not turn bitter like other lettuces. Oakleaf is also slow to bolt. Perfect for that whiskey barrel container on the back porch where lettuces are easy access for quick salads.
