Green Ice is one of the best and crispiest loose-leaf lettuces. Even better is that they are extremely heat tolerant and bolt resistant making it ideal for a home garden. The leaves are glossy, dark green, and savoyed, giving them extra-crunchy texture in every bite. 45 days.
Growing Instructions (USDA Zones 3-9):
As soon as the ground is workable in the spring, sow the seeds 1/2 inch deep in soil, 12" apart, in rows 18" apart. Likewise, you can start the seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before transplanting out when there is 4-6 mature leaves and a developed root system and water thoroughly after transplanting. For a fall crop, start sowing 8 weeks before the first fall frost. Germinates best in soil that is 55-65°. Make sure to allow enough space between seeds for the lettuce to grow, as overcrowding can cause the lettuce to have a bitter taste. Firm the soil lightly. While growing, keep the soil well watered. Harvest 70 to 79 days after planting. They prefer cooler weather, but need sunlight to grow properly. If they heat up too fast, or too early, iceberg lettuce could prematurely bolt, or go to seed. They are best when harvested just before this point, when the inner leaves are firm. Consider planting rows of chives or garlic between your lettuce to control aphids. They act as “barrier plants” for the lettuce.
