The crisp, stringless 12" stalks of this variety impart a light, refreshing flavor to soups and stocks. The vigorous 24-30" plants have deep-green leaves, light-green stalks, and compact hearts. Light, refreshing flavor enhances soups and stocks. It develops strong roots and has good heart development. This variety will grow well in most regions, but is a slow grower and needs a long season or an early start indoors.
Celery needs light to germinate so sow seeds very shallowly 10-12 weeks before last frost. Germination in 10-20 days. In cool climates, sow indoors, then moisten and cover with clear plastic. When celery leaves begin to emerge, remove the plastic cover and place the container in a sunny spot, always keeping soil moist. When there are two true leaves, transplant outside when soil has warmed and night temperatures have been above 40°F. Plant 8-10" apart.
