Iceberg lettuce

Details  

We grow iceberg lettuce in the open all year around. It is hand picked every day to ensure fresh produce. Bagged and tagged out in the field, the lettuce is vacuum chilled right after harvest to prolong the shelf life and to guarantee the best quality.

Besides bagging lettuce we also supply our customers with loose lettuce, which leaves a nice frame of leaves around the head.

Known for its crispiness that it adds to salads and sandwiches, iceberg lettuce became indispensable in healthy kitchens around the world. Especially for those who want to lose weight, iceberg lettuce seems to be a good option due to its very high water and low calorie content.

Did you know that the name ‘iceberg’ originates from the method of transport back in the days? In order to keep the lettuces fresh when transporting it across the country they would pack them in piles of ice to keep them cool.
