Celery, Single Piece

Count
  • celery can grow to optimal heights from 18" to 24". It has wide parsley-like green leaves and thick, juicy, ribbed stalks that join at a common base above the root.

  • Celery, at its best, has a juicy and crunchy flesh with a mild salty flavor. Although celery is most often used for its stalks, its leaves are edible as well and have a concentrated celery-flavor.

  • Refrigerate as soon as possible or celery will go limp. Wrap in a dry towel and place in a plastic bag or wrap tightly in foil and store in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator. It should keep for up to two weeks. For long-term storage, celery can be frozen.
