Lettuce (Eng.), Slaai (Afr.)
Oakleaf lettuce is a cool weather looseleaf crop, so make sure they are not exposed to too much sun or very hot weather.

Lettuce plants also serve as a wonderful ornamental in gardens and use different colors and leaf textures to make pretty patterns in your vegetable beds.
