Review:

First time growing celery in raised beds. Started from seed indoors in early spring. Very very prolific, tall, strong celery flavor all around. Mine were hollow stemmed which I"m not sure is the norm or not. Had a really wet summer and did succumb to fungal attack partly, as well as earwigs. But so much grew from each planting had more than enough to go around the entire summer through all temperature ranges. Seemed very hardy as far as changing between really hot days and cooler days. As fall approaches flavor is better.

Review:

Last season was my first garden adventure. I'd read that celery is difficult to grow, but I thought I'd try because I also read someone's review that said home grown is by far the best tasting. I thought I'd give it a try since I'm not a big celery fan, but I know home grown tomatoes are the only ones worth eating, and I thought maybe celery would be the same. I was right. No comparison. It grew very, very slowly, but had no pest problems and never seemed to suffer when other plants were flagging. I gave away lots, and was later sorry I didn't have more. I washed, chopped and froze what was left at the end of the season, adding it to winter soups for fantastic taste. Leaves and stems are a nice dark green and held color. Maybe I was successful because our summer was unusually mild last year, but I'm going to try it again and hope for even half the success. I grew both Utah Tall and Giant Red. The Giant Red was very pretty, but the stems were hollow and sort of papery.

Review:

I've grown this variety before, though not from baker creek since its new this year. Celery is hard to grow, but this variety survived for us when many other other varieties quit once they experienced a New England summer. We started it late, and overcrowded it so it didn't get huge, but we still got great greens for soups and even a few snacks. Bonus: we haven't cut it all yet and the last little bit is still alive in mid December but we haven't had a really hard freeze yet. Also, my cats thought it was delicious - they know the veg garden is off limits but couldn't stay away - we thought the little we got was amazing too. Hard work but home grown celery is worth it.
