Morgana was standout in our red oakleaf lettuce trial, as it performs great both as baby leaf and as vigorous, upright heads. It boasts a sweet and mild flavor with crisp texture. Leaves are long and semi-oak shaped with red margins and lime-green hearts. We sourced this seed from Adaptive Seeds who in turn discovered it from Seeds Savers Exchange curator Mary Schultz of Monroe, WA.
