It is the only lettuce type that does not occur in red form as well as green. Iceberg is the given name to dozens of cultivars of lettuce, all of which are adapted to specific planting regions and time periods.

Baby Queen Victoria pineapples are available year round.
Baby Queen Victoria pineapples go by many names, depending on the country in which you find them. In Australia they are ‘common rough’ pineapples, Britain, 'Victoria pineapples' or in South Africa, ‘Zululand pineapples’. They are unique pineapples and have slowly made a name for themselves in the world market since the 1980s.
Baby Queen Victorian pineapples, also known as Baby South African pineapples, are smaller than the common pineapple, standing only four to 5 inches tall. The fronds extending from the crown are only 2 inches longer and are sharp and covered in spikes. These mini pineapples have a fragrant golden orange skin and juicy, bright yellow flesh. They are sweeter and more aromatic than their larger counterparts.
This small fruit is considered a super fruit because of its high nutrient content. A super fruit is nutrient rich and is high in antioxidants, with a consumer friendly taste.
Baby Queen Victorian pineapples are used most often as a garnish or as décor. Its smaller size makes it perfect for use in beverages, fruit salads, or baked goods. The mini pineapple is refreshing eaten on its own or added to yogurt, ice cream, or juices. Use it in savory or sweet and sour dishes. These mini pineapples are entirely edible, unlike their larger cousins. If purchased at room temperature, keep at room temperature; if purchased cold, store in the refrigerator.
These mini pineapples thrive in a warm, humid climate. The Queen pineapple variety has been grown in the South African area of Hluhluwe, in Northern Zulu Land since the mid 1980's. Baby pineapples can also be found growing in Brazil, Hawaii and Thailand.

Spotter's comments : Specialty has the tiny pineapples. These are the smallest I've seen. Can't be more the baseball size.
