Celtuce: A Stocky Stem Lettuce From China

From RareSeeds.com:

Burpee's Seed Company introduced this Chinese variety to U.S. gardeners in 1942, but despite its splashy advocacy campaign, Celtuce never caught on. If Celtuce was a veggie ahead of its time in America, we think it's back! The leaves can be eaten raw, or cooked, but it's the stem that is the real star here.
