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*)

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.
