Iceberg Lettuce

A far cry from its wild, weedy ancestors, Lettuce now appears in all shapes, textures, flavors and sizes, bringing healthy crunch to modern kitchens. The varieties we offer are beautiful, reliable and usually not available in stores. To enjoy its ephemeral sweetness and texture, make sure Lettuce grows quickly: water it frequently and fertilize weekly with fish emulsion or manure tea. Direct-seed from the spring through the late summer. For baby greens, sow thickly and harvest with scissors or raise transplants, plugging seedlings into empty spaces in your garden as they become available.

Average seed life: 3 years.

Red Glacier Iceberg Lettuce

Red Glacier Iceberg Lettuce Red Glacier Iceberg Lettuce Red Glacier Iceberg Lettuce
50-70 days. Both gorgeous and delicious, Red Glacier has dazzling deep red-tinged leaves and a brilliant celadon-green heart. It yields tight full heads that hold well in the garden and color up nicely in the heat of summer. It has big crunch and a lovely, mild Lettuce flavor. Its ruby jewel tones jazz up the classic wedge salad: cut a quarter wedge of Red Glacier and drizzle with an ample portion of your favorite blue cheese dressing spiced with a kick of hot sauce. Sprinkle with crumbled bacon, thinly sliced scallions, red Onions and black olives and freshly cracked black pepper. Crunchingly refreshing. (OP)

Lettuce prefers cool weather. To raise transplants, start seeds 5 to 8 weeks before setting out. Transplant out as soon as the soil can be worked. Sow thinly in flats or pots using sterilized starter mix, cover lightly and water. Provide light, moderate warmth and good ventilation. Avoid crowding: thin to 2" apart. Amend Lettuce beds with compost, organic fertilizer and/or well-rotted manure. Gradually acclimate seedlings to outdoor temperatures and moderate sunlight, water well at transplanting time, shade seedlings from scorching sun and protect from heavy frosts. Keep soil moist with regular watering and feed with a liquid fertilizer as needed. For “baby” greens, broadcast seed, harvesting leaves when 3" to 4" high with scissors. Make successive sowings every 2 weeks for continuous harvest.
