Very unusual plant that can be used in two different ways
Celtuce is a stem-lettuce with a Chinese origin. It’s an unusual plant that can be used in 2 ways:

The leaves can be picked whilst young and used like a cut and come again lettuce. As the stem elongates, the rosette formation changes to a small tuft of leaves on the top.

The second use is for the stem which has a mild celery-like flavour. Peel off the outer layer and slice thinly. This tastes amazing in salads or can be lightly steamed.

Number of plants: 10

Variety: Celtuce (organic*)

Can be grown in: Pots and containers, grow bags, raised beds.

In the kitchen: The leaves can be picked either whilst young or when they have formed a rosette and used in lovely summer salads. The stem can be sliced and either lightly steamed, or added raw to your salads for an amazing flavour and texture.

Can be delivered from: late April to July.

*Transplants suitable for organic growing.
