Point of Interest: Lattuce Industry
Although Gaad is classed as an agricultural world nothing is grown on the planet surface. Instead it has a carbon and ice ring system on which the planet's fifty subsidized spaceships harvest and tend a naturally occurring plant life form. Lattuce is a high volume industry on Gaad. The farmers are more akin to belters, almost the entire population is dedicated to the harvesting, tending, export, and sale of lattuce.
The origins of lattuce is unknown. It is believed to be a genetic manipulation of naturally occurring plant life native to the world below. Although recent work by xeno-geneticists have found similarity to other ecosystems which has led to theories it may be a hybrid instigated during the Rule of Man to provide food sources for future colonies.
