Growing

Oak leaf is planted in rows, 25-30 cm apart. It can be harvested after around 6-7 weeks, when it is around 15-20 cm tall.

Nutrients

Oak leaf contains high levels of vitamin B, vitamin C, provitamin A and minerals.

Preparation

Before the oak leaf is prepared in a salad, the outer leaves and the end of the stalk must be removed. Oak leaf is suitable as a salad in its own right, or as an ingredient in a mixed salad. Like lollo rosso and lollo bionda, it is also an excellent garnish.

Storage/preservation

Oak leaf should be eaten as fresh as possible. It is very delicate, so extended storage is not recommended.
