GREEN ICE LETTUCE (45 days)

Germ 4-10 days
This vivid loose-leaf variety catches the eye and is delicious on the plate. The green, glossy leaves are meatier and more savoyed (crinkly) than other loose head types, and the 9” heads tend to be tighter and more compact. Flavor is very good and the exceptional crispness of each leaf is a real advantage. 500 seeds

PLANTING:

Indoors- 3-4 weeks before planting outside. Sow 1/4” deep in cells with soil temps 55-70 degrees. Transplant out 8-12” apart.

Outdoors- Sow 1/4” “deep, 1” apart. Thin to 6-12”, depending on the size of lettuce you want from baby to full heads. Keep moist during germination.

Harvest- cut whole head at base or individual leaves before lettuce starts to bolts and becomes bitter in the heat and long days summer.

Tips- Plant into fertile soil with lots of organic matter and adequate water for optimum growth. Sow heavy seeded rows every 10-14 days for baby greens using the 1 oz. Pinetree Lettuce Mix for a season long supply of lettuce.

Best green loose-leaf lettuce hands-down

I've been growing Green Ice lettuce for years. It is the very best green loose-leaf variety all season. It does not germinate well so it helps to start with fresh seed every year and plant it fairly thickly (every few weeks for lettuce all summer). The ones that grow are crisp, sweet and ruffly - much better than any other green loose-leaf variety I've tried and I think I have tried them all!

Tender lettuce

I started the seeds at home as it’s been too cold to start seeds in my Glen Spey garden. They quickly germinated and we’ve been eating the greens as we await warmer weather to sink them into the ground. Delicious.

Dependable leaf type

I've grown Green Ice for years. It is dependable for crinkle, body, and crunch in a leaf type. No more Black Seeded Simpson for me.
