When young, Cherokee can be harvested as a loose leaf type, but left to mature, the plants grow into impressive, compact, and heavy heads. Brilliant, deep red leaves deliver a crunchy, nutty flavor that is among the best we have tried. Seriously, we LOVE this lettuce! One of the best heat tolerant lettuces we’ve trialed, it stays sweet and crunchy under pressure, and shows excellent disease resistance. This Batavian-type is sure to make it on to your short list of favorites.
