Handle & Storage
Mr. Duke's Iceberg Lettuce is vacuum cooled. Storage at 0°C (32°F) with >95% RH are required to optimize lettuce storage life. A shelf-life of 21-28 days can be expected at this temperature and RH. At 5°C (41°F) a shelf-life of 14 days can be expected as long as no ethylene is in the environment.
