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? 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.

What are the pros? Unique

What are the cons? Haven't planted yet

Review:

I've eaten the stems many times in China and I am very glad I stumbled on to these seeds while browsing types of lettuce. I would not describe it as celery-like except for shape: it is not stringy and the stem is solid. It tastes more like a crunchy yet tender, peeled broccoli stem - but milder in flavor. The stalk is peeled, diced, and used in "Kung Pao Chicken" or other stir-fries for a slightly firm/crisp texture. I would think you could peel it and eat like carrots or jicama, with a dip. I have not yet tried Baker Creek's seeds, but this is a great vegetable!

What are the pros? The stems

What are the cons? The leaf is bitter

Review:

Grew this lettuce during the spring (2013) in the Bay Area, SF. The stems are very delicious in a stir-fry, but the leaves are very bitter.
