Most common leaf vegetables come from short-lived herbaceous plants (e.g. lettuce), but also many trees and woody plants have edible leaves.

Leafy vegetables provide a lot of nutrients. They are low in calories and fat, but high in dietary fiber and vitamin C. Leaves are especially important as a source of vitamin K.
