An original farm variety from Wild Garden Seed, 'Flashy Lightning Butter Oak' produces beautiful dark green oak-shaped leaves with dark red splashes.
Leaves have an exaggerated oak leaf shape, being wavy and large. Flavour is almost crispy fresh, while the mid-rib is crispy sweet.
Heads are mostly open while young and will fold into a dense heart with a blanched pink centre before bolting.
Beautiful on its own in a salad or mixed with green and red varieties. Harvest individual leaves by snapping them off at the base or wait until a head forms, then cut just beneath the head, above the soil line.
One of my favourite lettuce varieties!
Lettuce is hardy and may be planted outdoors in the spring. Start seeds indoors at least 6 weeks before the final frost date and transplant to the garden 3 to 4 weeks later. Seeds may be sown directly in the garden a minimum of 4 to 6 weeks before the final frost date.
Space seedlings at least 6 inches apart in the garden.
For more information on growing lettuce, please see my post "A Complete Guide to Growing Lettuce".
