An early and disease resistant celery that’s slow to bolt. Medium dark green celery with long, thick stalks that are sweet and crunchy. Overall plant height can be up to 75cm (30″), with the first joint appearing 26-28cm (10-11″) up on the plants. This variety develops strong roots with good heart development. It holds its form and colour in the field well, and is strongly flavoured for use in the kitchen. It first appeared on the market in 1953, so technically it’s an heirloom variety.
