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? delicious, easy to grow,

What are the cons? only bitter when old

Review:

Celtuce is also called Wo Sun .I have grown it two seasons now. It grows in spring winter and fall easily. With some shade it will grow in summer. it seems more heat tolerant than most lettuces. I eat it raw. I eat the leaves when they are young and let the plant grow till the stem gets fat. It is great in salads and reminds me of steamed rice! Peel and eat the stems raw. Yes the old leaves are more bitter and when it is going to seed it tastes more bitter. It is like eating the core stem of a really good lettuce that you grew! Great!

What are the pros? Grows fast.

What are the cons? Not enough recipes for it.

Review:

Two weeks after planting (last spring) we had baby lettuce. The row needed thinning, so we pulled a lot of and used it in salads. It was tasty. After the stalk began to form we continued to use the leaves. Tried the stalks in stir fry. Good, not great. Those who complain about bitterness may have tasted the plant after it formed flowers. Otherwise it is hard to understand why ours was OK and theirs was not.

What are the pros? None

What are the cons? Not as expected

Review:

These came up okay last summer. The leaves were somewhat bitter. I was not interested in growing them again until I saw some at an Asian market, so I thought I should give them another try. But they did not come up at all this summer. I plan to try again this fall to give a better effort in harvesting the stalks. I love celery, but I don't want to buy the non-organic in the stores, and the organic is too expensive. Looking to find an easy garden substitute.

What are the pros? can grow in winter under poly

What are the cons? older leaves bitter

Review:

I grew this under poly last fall/winter and it did very well. When the artic dips took us under 20 I added row cover and it survived fine. When it went down to 11 deg the top leaves were damaged but the stem (edible part) was fine but harvested right away. The stem is the size of a large cucumber - but solid. Used it in stir fries [better than water chestnuts], curries and stews. Cooks like celery but stays crunchy. I plan to grow this all year round. A wonderful addition to the kitchen. Oh, some family members didn't find the leaves to be too bitter and used them on sandwiches. Not sure if maybe summer grown this would become bitter.
