Chinese Leaves are quick maturing and form a cos lettuce type heart in under 9 weeks. Plants are very slow to bolt, so stand well over a long season. Use as salad leaves as you would a Romaine lettuce or as a full heart for salads, stir fries and as a cooked vegetable. Superb quality and garden performance without bolting. Mature heads can be cut and stored in a frost free shed.
