Product Overview

Lactuca sativa

Striking French heirloom with frilly leaves keeps its cool in warmer temperatures. Loose head with sweet, crisp leaves.

'Ice Queen' dates back to 1883, and gets its name because it is cold tolerant, but also tolerates heat well and is slow to bolt. This bright, emerald green lettuce with frilly leaves has crisp texture and excellent fresh flavor. Also delicious as a baby green. Once leaves have been cut, plants continue to grow.

Variety Info

Small, emerald-green center head surrounded by outer leaves with jagged, spikey edges (resembles a crown surrounding the center head). 'Ice Queen' is a summer crisp type lettuce, which is like an iceberg but with a more open habit.

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.
