Lettuce is a popular salad vegetable in most parts of the world including the Pacific. There are many varieties of lettuce to include cos lettuce (upright cylindrical), iceberg (head shape), curled-leaf lettuce and stem lettuce. They generally grow best at higher altitudes or cooler weathers and in well-drained, well-watered soils (Bailey, 1992).
