A very unique lettuce. Grown for its celery-like stem that is tasty raw or cooked; the leaves can also be used as greens. High in vitamin C; introduced from China in the 1840's.

What are the pros? easy, tasty, lovely

What are the cons? Bitter (see below).

Review:

This has been a fantastic addition to our garden. The young leaves are delicious in salads. Once the plants get large, the leaves turn bitter, but can be blanched or stir-fried to remove bitterness. The stalk-wow! nutty, crunchy, amazing. Make sure to peel it, as the core of the stem is tasty part. We also had some overwinter here, so that we had a jump start in the spring. Overall, a hardy, versatile, easy-to-grow, delightful plant.

What are the pros? Grows fast, non-bitter, great

What are the cons? none

Review:

This is a great addition to your cool season crops. Celtuce germinates quick, and produces baby 'lettuce' greens in about a month. The greens are delicious raw- not a hint of bitterness.

What are the pros? Long season, slow to bolt

What are the cons? needs space--grows long ropes

Review:

This was an experiment gone right! The earlier part of the growing season gave copious amounts of lettuce for salads; as the season progresses, they turn bitter, becoming candidates for stir fries or braises--it seemed like the increasing amount of milky sap reflected the level of bitterness as the plant matured. The ever-growing stalk's nutty flavor should not be ignored; it does get woody over time, but it can be scraped/peeled and served as a unique raw ingredient (think crudites) or cooked.

What are the pros? volunteers and grows easily

What are the cons? none

Review:

I love the taste and that one can eat the salad leaves through a Texas winter and then the stems are good thin and thick. Just peal the white off. I just had it salted in an omelet with parsley and chervil. It absorbs tastes very nicely. I have used it in stirfry and soup and all sorts of things. I leave one plant for seed and just let it fall and nature does the rest. It has been growing that way for 4 years.

Review:

I was reccommended celtuce from a friend, and am so thankful! It is my new favorite vegetable in the garden! It grew fast this spring and I am enjoying harvesting fresh young leaves. As stated above, the leaves taste like nutty rice... so delicious! I am excited to taste the stalk when mature. Better get more seeds in the ground!
