What are the pros? Amazing flavor, grows quickly

What are the cons? I didn't grow enough of it ;-)

Review:

Cleveland, OH, 2 blocks from Lake Erie: I grew this last year in square foot gardening beds and was really confused when people told me that celery was hard to grow because this stuff was so easy! Great germination, plus all the thinnings (cut, not pulled) re-rooted *beautifully*. Just stick them in a lil glass vase and you can practically watch those roots re-grow. Harvesting: Don't take the whole plant, just cut what you need and you'll get tasty celery all summer. Don't cover the plant with dirt either (aka "blanching") - this celery is *very* tender, though not the texture-less, pale bland crap you find at the supermarket. Once you try growing Tendercrisp celery, you'll never again want to eat the store-bought kind. My only problem with this celery is that we didn't plant enough of it lol! We practically stripped the poor plants last summer when we pressured canned veggie soup (Ball book recipe). My garden plan will always include this celery.

What are the pros? Incredible flavor

Review:

A long time ago someone said that you do NOT want to eat a tomato or celery from the supermarket. I filed that in my memory base. Of course I agreed with the tomato part, but the celery took a while to get. I ordered this kind by curiosity, and was totally blown away by the flavor. I made the chicken soup and my "praise challenged" husband had a look of pure delight as he had the chicken soup with this celery. It really had an incredible flavor. I had so much of it in the garden, (as I would only pick one stalk at a time, or as needed) that come winter, I froze it in zip bags. It didn't lose the flavor at all. It is however tough, so once cooked it has to be chopped really fine and put back into the soup. Enjoy!

Celery in the desert
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? Germinated well disease resist

What are the cons? Not for hot weather

Review:

I live in the desert southeast of California in Imperial County, think El Centro, Yuma, Palm Springs. I know celery does not do well here but I wanted to try it anyway. I planted in a garden that got sun only till about noon. All the seeds germinated, I grew it very close together in a row. I tried to blanch the stems by piling dirt around them and probably would have done better with straw. The leaves can be dried to make a salty, additive to recipes. The lower stalks were harvested when the plant was a foot tall and they were still small because I planted later than I could have and our Spring weather was getting warm in March. I use the stalks to cook with and I love them. I am going to buy it again and plant at the end of summer and see if I can get bigger, less bitter plants. I don't see anything wrong with this plant other than I grew a cool weather plant in warmer weather.

Review:

This is the best variety of celery we've grown thus far (we've grown 3 others). The heads were very large, the taste was *great*, and it was far less stringy than other varieities. Highly recommended!

Review:

This celery is wonderful. It grows beautifully and produces abundance large heads that are tasty and delicious. I ended up with so much celery I was giving away bushels of it to delighted friends. A big plus in my garden is that the deer and groundhogs did not bother it. It keeps in the garden until late in the season. Here's a photo of what I grew in my garden. http://chiotsrun.com/2009/08/21/homegrown-celery/
