Celery Seeds - Tendercrisp - Certified Organic

Celery Seeds - Tendercrisp - Certified Organic

(Apium graveolens)

Tendercrisp Celery is a popular variety with smooth, stringless green stems. It is ideal for consumption in both fresh salads as well as cooked dishes, and can grow up to 60cm tall. This variety prefers nutrient-rich, well-drained soil and frequent watering, while slugs and snails may be common pests.  With these seeds, you can enjoy the benefits of being certified organic seeds.

Celery likes rich well drained soil and ample water to ensure lush growth for a better textured stem. Sow seeds into pots and cover seed with 1-2mm of soil. Transplant to the garden at 3-5cm high and keep well fed. Harvest stems from 40 days as young stems. Allow to grow to full size after 80-90 days. Space plants 30cm apart. Ensure celery is planted in a fertile position to ensure lush green growth for best stems. To get super crunchy stringless stems it is recommended to blanch stems for 3 weeks prior to harvesting. Blanching is a simple process that restricts light getting to the stalks causing the plant to quickly elongate with soft new growth. To blanch simply tie the celery stalks into a tight bunch then wrap the lower 2/3 or the plant in 3-4 layers of newspaper so the top of the plant in the only part exposed to the sun. This can also be achieved with a used milk carton that has had the bottom and top of the carton cut out - Simply slip the carton over the celery plant for the same affect. Your tender celery stems will be ready to harvest in 2-3 weeks time.
