Homegrown Celery is delicious raw in salads and appetizers or cooked in sauces, soups, and stews. It requires a long growing season (at least four months) and grows best in moderate temperatures. Plant your Celery where it will get 6 hours of sun, but preferably somewhere that the Celery plant will be shaded for the hottest part of the day. Also, make sure that where you will be growing celery has rich soil. Celery needs lots of nutrients to grow well.
So improved over older varieties that it's almost an entirely new plant, Tango Celery delivers yields and flavor like you've never seen before! The stalks are wonderfully crunchy and sweet, springing up from exceptionally vigorous, robust plants. Size: 18-20 in.
Days to Maturity: 90
Exposure: Full Sun to Partial Shade
Hardier and more disease resistant than its relative, Celery, Celeriac has a similar flavour and aroma. It is best to grow Celeriac in fertile, organic rich, moisture retentive soil that gets plenty of full sun. Keep the soil constantly moist – it should never be allowed to dry out. As the plants mature, remove the outer leaves as they fall horizontal, to expose the crown and allow it to develop. Remove side shoots if they appear. Celeriac can be harvested and eaten before it attains its maximum size, but its flavour, like that of other root vegetables, is improved by a touch of frost, which converts some of its starch to sugar.
For those that like a Celery flavour in vegetable juices, stews, soups or salads Giant Prague Celeriac is the plant for you. While this plant is not a beauty queen, the large white roots are almost fibreless and possess a lovely Celery flavour.
