Product Overview

Lactuca sativa

Add crunch to your salads and sandwiches with this classic iceberg picked fresh from your garden. Also a nice baby green!

No other lettuce type provides the incredible, cool crunch of crisphead (also called iceberg). 'Great Lakes 118' is a 1960s improvement over the original 'Great Lakes'; heat tolerant, and bolt resistant. Toss it in with your salad mixes or top your sandwiches to liven them up.

Variety Info

Very compact, round heads with green outer leaves and a blanched center. 'Great Lakes 118' is heat tolerant, and bolt, scald, and tip burn resistant. An improved selection over the original, award-winning, 'Great Lakes', which was bred to be larger and firmer than the crisphead lettuces developed earlier in Europe, known as Batavia or summercrisp types.

Sowing Inside

4 to 6 weeks before your average last frost date, and in summer when soil temperatures are too warm (above 80°F) to germinate lettuce seed.

Sowing Outside

RECOMMENDED. 2 to 4 weeks before your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is at least 40°F, ideally 60°–70°F. Successive Sowings: Every 3 weeks until 4 to 6 weeks before your average first fall frost date. Mild Climates: Sow in fall and winter for cool season harvests.
