Celtuce

£4.99

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.

Delivery Info: Available to order now for delivery from late April 2022 until July 2022. Please see FAQs for up-to-date delivery info.

Planting/Growing Advice: Plant in spring approx 15cm apart in planters, raised beds, pots, containers or grow bags.

When to harvest: Start cutting the salad leaves when the plants reach about 10cm high. Clip the leaves with scissors, and the plants will re-grow and can be trimmed several times.

*Transplants suitable for organic growing.
