Lactuca sativa 'Ashbrook'. Ph: DeFacto

Many plant leaves are edible, from lettuces in salads to the leaves of many herbs. However, many leaves are not edible due to toxins present in them that affect human beings. Some leaves can be eaten by some species but not by others, due to the development of specialized digestive processes in some animals.
