Lettuce Seeds - Red Iceberg

Lactuca sativa

An excellent green/dark red iceberg lettuce, whose crisp, sweet, tightly wrapped heads stand well without bolting. RHS Award of Garden Merit winner.

Tom says: Quick and easy lettuces are many peoples first veggie crop. Try mixing red and green lettuce leaves to add a note of bitterness to salads, or try slicing up little gem lettuces and sautéing with peas and garlic for an alternative homegrown lunch.
