Iceberg Heading Lettuce 1000 Seeds From The Dirty Gardener
We at the Dirty Gardener love this for our asian lettuce wraps as well as fresh crispiness to our summer salads. Crisphead, also called Iceberg, forms tight, dense heads that resemble cabbage. They are generally the mildest of the lettuces, valued more for their crunchy texture than for flavour. Cultivars of iceberg lettuce are the most familiar lettuces in the USA. Using ice they carefully covered the heads of lettuce and shipped them year around and all the way as far as Maine, as the train pulled into each stop, folks would call out excitedly, "The icebergs are coming, the icebergs are coming!" The name stuck. Before that people had to depend on what you could grow locally and preserve from the gardens.
