Details

Alternating pink and light green stripes on each stalk make this celery easy on the eyes in the garden and on the plate. If you think celery is just a garnish or soup stock ingredient, think again. Home grown celery has an incredible flavor that will have you braising it, sauteeing it, or even grilling it in no time. The stripes stay put even after its cooked!

Start seeds indoors 8 weeks before last frost. Seedlings are slow to start. Transplant outdoors 10 inches apart when 1-2 sets of true leaves emerge. Celery is a heavy feeder and needs plenty of moisture. Nutrient deficiencies can affect the quality of the stalks and insufficient water can result in tough, fibrous texture. Once the stalks have formed, you can harvest the plant at once or try cutting the outer stalks and leaving the young ones to grow.
