Lactuca sativa var. augustana

Asparagus-lettuce (Lactuca sativa var.augustana (var. asparagina)), 40-80 days is also called Chinese lettuce (Who Sun) and is a very old vegetable in Asia. In Europe it has been present since the mid 1800s. The Chinese name translates as "˜brittle stem lettuce"™. Young leaves can be picked early as lettuce, but it is the peeled stalk with its light-green, refreshing and juicy marrow, which is a mild delicacy. The stalks grow to 3-5 cm in width and 30-45 cm tall. It should be harvested just before beginning to flower. Cultivate it in the same way as ordinary lettuce. It tolerates some frost. The peeled stalk is used in slices or staves, fresh in salads as well as lightly poached. A portion contains about 500 seeds.
