Description

[70-80 days spring/summer; 90-100 days fall] An All-America Selections winner in 1944, this first true iceberg lettuce remains a favourite for both home gardens and restaurants alike. They are both low maintenance and easy to grow, and their large, crisp heads pack the perfect. Crunch. It can be grown almost anywhere and does well in containers or small gardens. It also tolerates light frost, is heat and cold tolerant and has a strong resistance to bolting and tip burn. The heads are large, glistening and well-folded and the fine-flavoured leaves offer a crisp texture. If you’re fond of iceberg lettuce, then Great Lakes is the variety for you!
