Reigning supreme among crispheads, this French heirloom, literally meaning the 'Queen of the Ice', thrives in cold conditions, and is thus ideal for early spring sowing, remaining crisp and resisting bolting when things warm up. Lacy leaves with serrated edges gently caress the lighter green, sweet, succulent heart which has a crunchy texture and distinctive mild bitter taste, making it a favourite amongst chefs.

Sowing Advice

Sow seed on soil surface and barely cover. Do not allow seedbed to get really dry. Thin gradually. In cooler climates lettuce may be grown straight through the summer, as well as spring and fall. Rich, moist soil is necessary. Plants may benefit from a few hours of afternoon shade in hottest summer weather.
