What are the pros? Germinated well disease resist
What are the cons? Not for hot weather
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.
