Lettuce - Iceberg


Lettuce –  Iceberg

The classic lettuce, Iceberg is known for its full, tight head and crisp crunch. An excellent textural addition to salads and sandwiches. Stores well.

Sow 3mm deep; Plant spacing at 20cm apart; Sow rows at 25-30cm apart; Germination period between 6-10 days; Soil temperatures between 8˚C and 27˚C; Harvest time approx. 8-12 weeks.

Lettuce prefers cooler growing conditions in well-drained, loose soil with consistent water. Needs daily water and shade in warmer weather to prevent a bitter flavour and bolting to seed. Harvest when the head is fully mature.
