An exalted member of the aromatic mirepoix triad, Celery, along with Carrots and Onions, helps form the flavor base for a good percentage of French, and many other, cuisines . A bit finicky to start from seed, it is best grown as transplants sown 10 to 12 weeks before setting out after all threat of frost has passed. A thirsty and hungry vegetable, Celery must be kept well-watered and fertilized throughout the growing season. You may harvest the outer stalks anytime or you may cut the entire plant off 1" above the soil level. For the best flavor and storage capacity, water Celery well the day prior to harvest.

Average seed life: 3 years.
