What are the pros? delicious, easy to grow,
What are the cons? only bitter when old
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!
