Iceberg Lettuce

Greta's Organic Gardens


3057 - Iceberg. 65 days. Not to be confused with the generic term for head lettuce, this Batavian variety is an heirloom more than a century old. Golden green leaves with wavy pink margins form large soft oval heads. Unique color and upright form for salad mix. Good resistance to downy mildew and Sclerotinia. Sow every 3 weeks for a continuous supply. For direct-seeding full-size heads, plant 3 seeds every 8”, 0.5cm deep, in rows 12”-18” apart. Thin to one seedling per group. For transplanting, 3-4 weeks prior to moving outdoors sow in flats at 4 seeds/inch or in small-cell plug trays, barely covering seeds with fine vermiculite.

Safe Seed Pledge

Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative. We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds.
