Danyelle Red Oakleaf Lettuce

50 days. Dark wine-red, Danyelle has deeply lobed and frilled leaves and a full, yet compact, open rosette head. Its sweet and mild taste is wonderful when cut as a baby leaf or when fully grown. Bolt-resistant, it performs extremely well in the high heat of summer. Our taste favorite in trials, Danyelle is popularly featured in farmers markets since it may be harvested continuously over an extended period. (OP.)

A far cry from its wild, weedy ancestors, Lettuce now appears in all shapes, textures, flavors and sizes, bringing healthy crunch to modern kitchens. The varieties we offer are beautiful, reliable and usually not available in stores. To enjoy its ephemeral sweetness and texture, make sure Lettuce grows quickly: water it frequently and fertilize weekly with fish emulsion or manure tea. Direct-seed from the spring through the late summer. For baby greens, sow thickly and harvest with scissors or raise transplants, plugging seedlings into empty spaces in your garden as they become available.

Average seed life: 3 years.
