Lettuce - Red Oak


Red oak lettuce is known for its incredibly sweet and mellow flavour, nutty with a buttery texture—and looks beautiful on the plate. Lettuce leaves are burgundy-red stained, elongated, lobed and loosely serrated, similar to the leaves of an oak tree. They form semi-tight rosettes at the core.

Where possible, purchase whole heads of lettuce over loose leaves, as they are likely to be fresher and more nutritious. Select lettuce with bright, crisp, tender leaves, free of discolouration and decay.

Don’t store lettuce near ethylene gas-producing fruit such as apples, pears or bananas, as this will accelerate the lettuce’s deterioration. Store whole lettuce unwashed in an airtight bag or container in the fridge crisper or bottom shelf for up to 1 week.
