Chinese White Celery

Rating:
94% of 100

Easy to grow! A delicate and delicious Chinese variety with snow white stalks. White celery has been cultivated in the Chinese town of Liyang for over 800 years. Stems are long, slender, and hollow, with strong celery flavor that is ideal for Asian soups and stews, but equally suitable for mirepoix and other recipes calling for celery. This variety is known to be easy to grow and more heat tolerant than other celery varieties. Chinese celery is also known as "cutting celery." The slender stalks are richly flavored and lend depth to bases, stocks, and soups. The stems also make a superb snack and may be used in place of European celery.
