Lettuce Iceberg, also known as crisphead lettuce, gets a bad rap as only being good for empty calories. But, in actuality, it has nutritional value, it's delicious, and keeps longer than most other lettuce types, making it a wise economical choice since it minimizes spoilage and waste.Iceberg is a variety of lettuce with crisp leaves which grows in a spherical head resembling cabbage. It is considered one of the sweeter lettuce varieties like romaine and butterhead. Mature iceberg lettuce grows to about one foot in diameter. The leaves on the outside tend to be green and the leaves in the center go from pale yellow to nearly whitish as you move closer and closer to the center of the head.
