Celtuce Lettuce

A very unique lettuce. Grown for its giant, crunchy stems that are tasty raw or cooked, the leaves can also be used as greens. This is a totally new type of vegetable for most Americans, although it was introduced from China in the 1840s. These are quite delicious and are high in vitamin C!

What are the pros? It was simple to grow.

What are the cons? Bolted to to quickly in the NW

Review:

It grew in some really bad soil. My soil is real sandy, and I must add lots of compost to it. I started the Celtuce lettuce in start pots and transplanted them into raised beds, and they then sat idle. Then overnight they took off, and before I knew it, they were turning to seed. Not sure if it was me or something else, but I’m giving them a second try for fall and they are starting to sprout after about 5 days. Although I direct sowed the lettuce this time and can’t wait to see how they fair because our first frost will be in the middle of October.

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.

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.
