86% of 100

50 days. This massive stem lettuce variety is popular in southwest China. Originally from the Mediterranean, celtuce is a type of lettuce that is grown for its large, swollen stem. Green Mountain celtuce produces jumbo stems that remain crunchy, tender and juicy as they reach epic proportions. In the Baker Creek test kitchen, we love to experiment with this new vegetable, serving it raw in salads, stir fried and even as a gluten-free pasta substitute. The flavor is exceptional, with refreshing notes of cucumber and sweet corn. First-time celtuce growers will appreciate this carefree, prolific variety. Introduce something entirely new and delicious to your culinary repertoire with celtuce! This variety should be planted in the fall, about 50 days before the first frost.
