"Balmoral" iceberg lettuce (Lactuca sativa var. capitata) is the ideal variety for early field cultures. It is characterized by its crunchy, delicious, appetizingly denticulated leaves that are recommended for consumption in salads. Easy cultivation and resistance to diseases make this vegetable a perfect plant for all those who have just started their gardening adventure. You may grow it not only in the garden, but also in boxes on balconies and terraces. Iceberg lettuce is a low-calorie vegetable that is at the same time rich in nutrients. It contains calcium, iron, as well as provitamin A, vitamins B1, B2, C and vitamin E. Iceberg lettuce is rich in fibre and cellulose that regulate digestion processes. Its leaves stay fresh and retain their taste for a long time.
Due to the low temperature requirements "Balmoral" lettuce seeds may be sown already at the end of February until April onto the field in rows in 25 x 20 cm spacings. After approximately one month you would need to thin the too densely growing seedlings. The harvest falls for June - July. Iceberg lettuce grows well and yields rich harvest in sandy-clay, fertile, permeable soils rich in nutrients and water.
