Iceberg Lettuce Gets a Makeover


Think of iceberg lettuce as a tasteless bunch of nothing? Think again. Boggiatto Produce, the Salinas Valley grower known for its tender baby romaine hearts, has just introduced a new product: Iceberg Babies. Grown from proprietary seeds, the softball-sized heads of lettuce are sweeter and more flavorful than the big, bland heads of iceberg you pass up at the grocery store—but just as crisp. Expect to see these tiny lettuce heads on local restaurant plates this summer.
