While there are literally hundreds of individual varieties of lettuce, all of them actually derive from 5-6 main categories or groups. These include: Butterhead, Chinese lettuce (Stem lettuce), Crisphead (which includes Iceberg), Looseleaf (Bunching), Romaine, and Summer crisp (this one is not always named).
