Lettuce Crisphead Great Lakes 118 - 1.0 g (~660 seeds)

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.
