Apium graveolens var. secalinum (E-Z Leaf Celery)

Life: Biennial

Size: 10-12"

Light: Full Sun

Water: Moist, Well-Drained

Soil: Sandy to Sandy Loam, Mildly Acidic to Neutral pH

The leaves are curly and aromatic, shaped in a similar fashion to Italian Flat Leaf Parsley, but with the regular light green celery color. The leaves are best eaten while tender and maybe used as a garnish or to season soups and stews. The long, slender stalks may also be eaten raw. Unlike regular celery, blanching is not required. Works well in containers as well as a garden. Should be planted in the cool weather of fall.
