An uncommon variety and a great alternative to the plain green iceberg, having the same delicious sweet taste and crisp texture. Possesses beautiful reddish bronze outer leaves and a fairly tight 8-10” heads that hold for a long time. Has much more nutritional value than other icebergs.
Germination: 4-10 days
Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 60-70ºF. Soil temperatures above 75 ºF inhibits germination.
Seed Sowing Depth: ¼ inch deep
Starting Indoors: Start 3-4 weeks before planting outside. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot, thinning to one per cell/pot. Provide 60-70ºF soil temperatures. Transplant out, 8-12” apart in rows 12” apart.
Sowing Outdoors: Spring when soil temperature reaches at least 50ºF. Sow 1” apart, thin to 6-12”, depending on the size of lettuce you want, baby to full heads. Keep soil moist during germination. Sow every 2-3 weeks for a longer harvest period. Sow heavy seeded rows every 10-14 days for baby greens using the 1/2 oz. Pinetree Lettuce Mix.
How much does a packet plant: 25-40 foot single row
Harvest: Cut whole heads, full sized or baby at base or snipe off individual leaves.
Tips: Lettuce needs fertile soil for optimum growth. Work in compost or well rotted manure into your soil before planting. Provide adequate, even moisture for the best growth. Mulching helps retain moisture.

Love this iceburg lettuce! Good flavor. Great germination. It seems fairly hardy, has survived a few good frosts without cover. Doing a trial now to see how hardy it is.
