Lactuca sativa

La lechuga (Lactuca sativa) es una planta anual, propia de las regiones templadas, que se cultiva para alimentación. Debido a las muchas variedades que existen se puede consumir durante todo el año. Normalmente se toma cruda, como ingrediente de ensaladas y otros platos; ciertas variedades, de origen chino sobre todo, poseen una textura más robusta y se emplean cocidas.
