Ice Queen (Reine des Glaces) Summer Crisp Lettuce Seeds Reviews
The way lettuce should taste
This is an easy to grow, loose head forming lettuce. It is frost tolerant but grows slowly in cold soil so I start it under lights, harden off and set out as early as 3 or 4 weeks before the last frost date. Far more flavor than a standard iceberg, with no bitterness.
A good lettuce
Tastes like lettuce should taste. Crunchy too. Will form a lightly-wound head if you wait for it and is not likely to bolt quickly (though it will if too hot and dry.) I start under lights in early spring but still set out early, a couple weeks before last frost. I keep a flat or two going under lights or in a protected area to fill in harvested areas in my kitchen garden as the season goes on.
This year’s planting of Summer Crisp ( with the French name ) does not look the same as last year’s Summer Crisp. Still edible, but is it a different variety yet still called a summer crisp?
Owner Response: Hi Carolyn, You are right, this heirloom cultivar fall into the summer crisp group which has several, diverse cultivars. Enjoy!
I started these in the early Fall and they haven’t done great, but they aren’t failing either. I will try them again this summer.
Great little lettuce!
I planted these in late 2020 for an autumn harvest and i have to say im impressed with these! They held their own even despite the wild temperature swings from hot, to cold, to hot again that we were having and never once bolted. They were a little smaller than i expected but i believe that was due to an error on my part with fertilizing them. Definitely worth growing again.
Beautiful Giant Heads of Lettuce
2021 was my first time growing this variety of lettuce. Started them indoors the first week of January and planted them out at the end of February. They are now gigantic! The leaves are crisp and have a lovely flavor with no bitterness at all. Not sure if it will survive the summer heat here in TX, but planning on planting them again in the fall.
