a native Chinese lettuce that looks and tastes (but is NOT) a cross between celery and lettuce. enjoy a cool growing season, and can typically take up to 6 months to mature.

TFL take: served with hawaiian hearts of palm in a salad. the stalks are lightly grilled and dressed with olive oil and salt. the natural taste resembles a cucumber with faint hints of buttered popcorn (…seriously)

aka: Chinese lettuce, celery lettuce, asparagus lettuce, stem lettuce
