This exceptional red oakleaf type is one of the finest lettuces we have grown. It has outstanding form and color, with leaves that transition beautifully from light green to dark bronzy red. The sweet and delicately textured leaves are deeply lobed and delicate, facilitating pulling apart when it is time for salad preparation. Cantarix is best grown in spring and autumn, although it holds well in warm weather, too. If allowed to grow to maturity Cantarix forms impressively large heads, fine for display at the farmer's market or in the family kitchen. Cantarix has a broad range of disease resistances including downy mildew races 1-26, lettuce mosaic virus and lettuce leaf aphid.
