lettuce

Season: May to November

Description: Lettuce is a member of the sunflower family and was enjoyed by both the ancient Romans and Egyptians. Christopher Columbus introduced lettuce to the New World. There are six recognized Cultivar groups of lettuce: Butterhead, Chinese, Iceberg, Looseleaf, Romaine, and Summer Crisp. As of 2003, 51 % of the world’s lettuce was grown in China.

Lettuce is 95% water, with darker lettuce being the most nutritious. When buying lettuce, avoid any that look or feel blemished or slimy. Lettuce can be stored in plastic bags in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.

Did you know? The ancient Egyptians had many uses for lettuce oil: skin salves, headache relief, and salad dressings!
