    Celtuce

    £4.99
    (10 Plants)

    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.
