Celery, One Community

CELERY/CELERIAC

(Click here for celery/celeriac purchase details)

Celery/Celeriac (Apium graveolens)
Celery/Celeriac, One Community

Celery stems are fibrous, juicy, and eaten, cooked, dried, pickled, and canned; while the leafy tops are consumed as spicy greens. Whole plants with roots can be root cellared in moist sawdust for forcing in spring like endive. Tuberous-rooted forms known as celeriac also produce crisp flavorful roots for soups and stews. Celery comes in two primary types: traditional trench celery and self-blanching celery. Learn the difference HERE.

CULTURAL CONSIDERATIONS
      • The plants like humus and good drainage
      • Celeriac gets “black heart” disease if the soil is deficient in calcium
      • Avoid excess nitrogen especially with Celeriac or roots will be small
      • Whole plants can be blanched in paper tubes to increase tenderness
      • Plants require steady moisture for best results, mulch helps with this
PLANTING GUIDELINES

Celery and celeriac are usually grown from transplants in spring, set out 8-12 inches apart. Mulch immediately and water in well. Lightly fertilize every 2-3 weeks with compost tea or worm casting tea.
