This is the standard crisp-head variety with large solid hearts and very crisp, tasty leaves. In warmer parts of the country, it may not form the tight heads that it does in California (where most head lettuce is commercially grown), but the looser heads that do form are delicious and distinctly Iceberg nonetheless. If you live in an area in which the temperature gets hot fast in the spring, harvest the heads early and enjoy. Rich in vitamin A.
