Lettuce, Wild        (Lactuca virosa)

(Lettuce Opium, Wild Lettuce) 

Biennial.  Native to Central and Southern Europe .  Young plants of giant wild lettuce are a good ingredient for heroic salads.  This is the most cold hardy of all lettuces, germinates in the fall and grows very nicely through the winter in a zone 7, producing very reasonable salads midwinter, which is before the plant goes tough and bitter.  Lactuca virosa is a preferred wild species from Europe--nutrient dense, good winter salad, bright purple-black seeds, much less spiny than the new world weedy types.    Mature plants contain high concentrations of bitter, rubbery sap, which when milked from the plant and dried is known as lactucarium.  So concentrated, the sap is mildly sedative, antitussive, and analgesic.  Sow in spring or fall. Flowers yellow to 6 feet.
