Oakleaf Royal forms well-balanced rosettes of deeply lobed sea green leaves.
Royal is an improved version of the standard oak leaf lettuce.
The flavor is tender and sweet.
Oakleaf Royal is particularly know for being long-standing and heat resistant.
TIP: When a lettuce says it is heat resistant that means it will last longer in the early summer months and not start to taste bitter or go to seed. That however doesn't mean you plant it in the summer. Lettuce is still a cool weather crop that needs to be planted in the early spring or late summer.
