Iceberg Babies® Baby Iceberg Lettuce

Iceberg babies

Sweet, flavorful and refreshingly crunchy. The creative opportunities are endless

Our baby iceberg lettuce is a delicious take on a traditional item that we’ve developed from special seed to yield a softball-sized produce wonder. This isn’t immature or peeled down conventional iceberg lettuce. Our Iceberg Babies® are small packages that deliver big with serving value and diner appeal.

  • Iceberg Babies® inspires culinary creativity with the crunch of classic iceberg lettuce.
  • Easier portion control with each head of our mini iceberg lettuce.
  • We plant and harvest fresh, crisp baby iceberg lettuce year around.
  • Jeff Hitchcock

    “Since its development in 2004, we’ve been very proud of how well-received our non-GMO Iceberg Babies® have been across the U.S. and Canada.”

    What can you do with our mini iceberg lettuce that you can’t do with classic iceberg lettuce?

    The presentation possibilities are as unique as its delicious, sweet flavor.
