Iceberg Lettuce

Ever wonder how iceberg lettuce got its name? Back in the 1920s, lettuce was transported by train in cars filled with crushed ice, making them look like icebergs. Today, consumers enjoy the crunchy texture and refreshing taste of field fresh iceberg lettuce. Iceberg lettuce comes in tight, dense heads similar to cabbage, and is considered the mildest of the lettuce varieties.
