Celeriac Apium graveolens
This swollen-rooted relative of celery requires a long growing season to reach a good size. Sow under glass in February, pot on regularly, and plant out in May after hardening off, spacing the plants 30-40cm apart in a block. Requires fertile soil and generous watering. Harvest from October onwards.
This large-rooted, medium to late maturing variety is resistant to bolting and will store well into winter. It has dark green foliage and crisp white flesh. Can be grated and added to salads, or used in soups and stews. Let us know what you think.
Please note: this variety needs a little bit more of a helping hand, so we are not able to send out seeds with gifts, however by adopting it you will be directly contributing to its conservation, so that one day we will be able to make it available to everyone.
