A small yet vibrant green oak leaf type which matures in 55- 60 days in soil and 45-55 days with hydroponics.. Sweet taste with thin leaves that have a firm texture. A good addition to any salad Likes at least 4 hours direct sun per day. Fairly heat resistant and does not stress in the hot mid day sun like other varieties.
