Head lettuce (Lactuca sativa) is a low calorie, healthy and digestible vegetable rich in minerals, vitamins B1, B2, B6, C as well as carotene and folic acid. It develops loose heads consisting of broad, green, appetizing leaves with a delicious, tender taste. It may be eaten with no limitations in salads and on sandwiches. Regularly consumed lettuce supports digestion processes, deacidifies the body and beneficially affects the nervous system.
Lettuce seeds are sown directly to the ground from March to April. This vegetable does not require much in terms of the soil, provided it is constantly moist and not too compact. It prefers sunny and wind-sheltered sites. Leaves and whole heads can be harvested from April to June.
