Iceberg Lettuce - Leafy

Produce Name : Iceberg Lettuce - Leafy

Availability : All Round the Year

An Iceberg lettuce is a crisphead-type lettuce with a solid, spherical heart. It is individually wrapped in clear film and trimmed so that a single whorl of pale greenish wrapper leaves remains, with all the leaves attached to the central base. Good-quality iceberg lettuce will have fairly large, moderately firm heads that give to gentle pressure, and thick leaves. The leaves will be medium to light-green in color blending to nearly white ribs or veins. Scratch the stalk and smell. A sweet or bitter smell means sweet or bitter flavor.
