The Lettuce is a Resource in the Primitive+-DLC of ARK: Survival Evolved.

Lettuce is obtained by growing Lettuce Seed in a Medium Crop Plot or Large Crop Plot.


Can be used to tame dinos, similar to Fresh Spinach (Primitive Plus) and Fresh Sorghum (Primitive Plus).

Taming with Lettuce is twice as fast as taming with normal crops (e.g. Rockarrot) by using the same amount. If you don't have the right kibble it's the best way to tame herbivores, although taming effectiveness can drop really low.

Spinach, Lettuce and Sorghum restore 20 food points during taming process. You need the same amount of spinach as you would need basic crops, but crops restore 40 points. That's why taming with spinach is twice as fast.

Lettuce is also used to craft the following items:


  • Confirmed 8/3/2017 Lettuce/Cabbage can be used for taming again. Works great on Paracer tested in Scorched Earth 2 May 2018.
  • Confirmed for Ankylosaurus on XBOX One, 1/5/2019.
  • Not all herbivores eat this food, e.g. Kentrosaurus ignores it.
  • Does not restore any food points for humans. Make salad for this purpose.
