Chinese Celtuce. Originating in southern China, celtuce is botanically a lettuce. Harvest when the edible stem thickens and reaches a length of 8-10". The tender stems have a flavor that is mild to slightly bitter, and are typically sliced and used in stir fries and soups. Crops grown in cool weather will be milder. The young leaves may also be used in salads.
