Green Ice Lettuce Seeds for garden planting or microgreens
Harvest well into summer!
Juicy, bright leaves of dark green are lightly savoyed for extra crispness!
45 days. Green Ice is one of the crispest, most satisfying loose-leaf lettuces you can grow. The leaves are glossy, dark green, and savoyed, giving them extra-crunchy texture in every bite. Ready in just 45 days, they are among the earliest, yet last well into summer, thanks to superior heat tolerance. This is one loose-leaf that just won't bolt! A distinctly different look and appeal, combining the large, ruffled look of a looseleaf with the crunchiness of a crisphead. Gardeners have enjoyed its bounty for years!
Germination: Work and prepare soil bed while average daily highs are still in the lower 70's. Barely cover seeds with a thin layer of soil and water frequently until seedlings emerge, about 10 days. Thin to 4 inches apart. Lettuce thrives in cold weather and can be sown directly into the garden, starting in early spring. For an even earlier harvest, sow indoors; the seedlings don't mind transplanting. 600 seeds will sow a 30-foot row.
