Tree lettuce, otherwise known as asparagus lettuce or spring tower is an Asian green used commonly in stir fries and soups. The plant grows upright like lettuce and creates a stalk much like lettuce going to seed, however it is not bitter and milky like lettuce. The leaves are edible; however, the main use is for the tall stalk. Grow in spring by direct sowing or starting indoors 1-2 weeks before your last frost date. Treat tree lettuce just like regular lettuce, but do NOT cut the main stalk or it will not grow back.
