Flashy Butter Oak Lettuce

55 days. Here’s a newer lettuce introduction that combines crimson-red splashes with the leaf form of apple-green oak-leaf lettuce, and a butter-cos lettuce habit! It might sound mixed up but that’s a good thing because “Flashy Butter Oak” combines superior taste, texture and form—truly at the forefront of today’s open-pollinated breeding. This versatile variety excels equally whether harvested as baby greens, baby heads or at full maturity. The texture is silky, the taste is mild, juicy and sweet. A Frank Morton innovation.

What are the pros? Beautiful leaves, good flavor

What are the cons? nothing

Review:

Winter here in Massachusetts and we're looking at several inches of snow and ice on the ground. I've got several small planters full of rich heavily amended organic soil on a shelving unit next to an east facing window. They are densely planted with this variety of lettuce and several others as well, and all of them are doing great. I have a cheap supplemental 4000k LED shop light from Home Depot shining on them with a timer set for 12 hours on and 12 off which has helped immensely to keep these guys going strong. All the lettuces I bought from Baker Creek are growing strong and with great germination rates, the Flashy Butter Oak is no exception! Instead of sad and boring supermarket salad greens we have been enjoying amazing fresh salads for the past two months. I particularly like the shape of these leaves and the wonderful variegated colors. They taste sweet and delicious. Highly recommended and I can't wait to plant some outside in the spring.

What are the pros? tastes great

What are the cons? none

Review:

This was a great lettuce for us, as we live in a foggy climate and got multiple cuts from one plant in the spring. Space your plants about 6"-6.5" apart. It produced alot in a 4x8 raised bed. It seemed to have grown well among the carrots. We also grew this in summer and did ok because we have a cooler climate. We direct seeded and everything germinated, just added some of our homemade compost.

What are the pros? Beauty and flavor

What are the cons? Lower germination

Review:

The lettuce is as beautiful in the garden as it is in the pictures. The flavor is very good as well and does well under cut and come again management. The 2014 seeds had noticeably lower germination rates than the rest of the lettuce I grew, but that's the only knock--not sure if it is the variety or just the 2014 lot of seeds, we'll see how the 2015 batch of seed germinate because I'm growing it again.

Review:

How am I the first person to write a review of this beautiful and tasty little guy? It's not the easiest lettuce to get going. It seems to take about twice as many seeds and twice as much time to get up and running but it's worth it, here's why: ----- It's beautiful, almost like a green speckled flower ----- Even in hot conditions like this summer in SoCal (85-100 F) it's done pretty good, no wilting, no burning, no bolting. It's not as attractive to hoop caterpillars as my Sunset and Little Gems for some reason, even though I find them hiding in the Flashy Oak in the morning, but who knows why. ----- But how is it to eat? I pulled two of mine early, just as they were starting to really build up a head and we really enjoyed them. Because of the heat the leaves were a little tougher at the mid rib than normal lettuce, but the taste was really nice. A little nutty and sweet. I can only imagine that as things cool down they will only get better.
