What Makes Iceberg Babies® Unique? Our baby iceberg lettuce heads are not simply immature. 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 and our skilled iceberg lettuce growers 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 mini gems are slightly larger than 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.
