What are the cons? smallish stalks
I had to think hard for a “dislike” about this celery. Like another reviewer, I was confused about people saying celery was hard to grow- until I tried to grow another kind of celery. Tendercrisp is very rewarding to grow. We don’t harvest a whole plant until the end of the season- instead we grow several plants and harvest what we need from the outside. We’ve grown Tendercrisp alongside several others and never has it been outdone by a neighbor. When the others are hollow and pithy because of heat or lack of water, Tendercrisp still shines. I’ll be trying the BC red and pink varieties this year, but I’ve given up experimenting with other green celeries. This is the one for me. We grow ours in a raised bed in our zone 4a VT garden from seeds started in mid February.
