What Makes Iceberg Babies® Unique? Iceberg Babies® are not simply immature heads of lettuce. Yes, we do harvest them a few days earlier than their full-size counterparts, but we also grow them from special seed, which develops a smaller size head. In addition, we employ special growing methods including spacing on the ground, and timing of water and nutrients, to maintain uniform size and density.
Smaller is Better. A traditional favorite - once the centerpiece of every salad - iceberg lettuce gave up ground in recent years to romaine and leaf lettuces. But it's a brand new day with Iceberg Babies®. These diminutive gems are about the size of a softball, which will delight your guests, as will the texture and refreshingly crisp crunch that can only be iceberg.
A Real Sweetie! Iceberg Babies® are sweeter and more flavorful than conventional iceberg lettuce and the single-service size opens the door to virtually limitless serving options.
