No you are asking someone else to do the work. If it were really doing it you would google the answer yourself or read whatever book you were suppose. Half of what you are suppose to be learning is how to do research.

Zone 6 is where the majority of lettuce is grown. The United States Department of Agriculture is credited with determining the areas. In the U.S., a number of large cities fall within the Zone 6 area, including Portland, Oregon; Chicago; Denver; and Detroit. Different varieties of lettuce are grown in different areas, though. China is the largest producer of lettuce, followed by the U.S., Spain and Italy. Lettuce is also grown in Japan, France and Mexico.

History

The lettuce that we see today actually started out as a weed around the Mediterranean basin. Served in dishes for over 4500 years, lettuce has certainly made its mark in history- as seen from tomb paintings in Egypt to the depiction of many different varieties in ancient Greek relics. Christopher Columbus introduced lettuce to the new world.
