Celery Tall Utah
The rich green stalks of Tall Utah celery are folded around a compact heart. The 12 inch stalks are tender - yet crisp and remain string-less. Each head is aromatic and flavorful. The stalks are eaten raw or cooked, but don't forget the leaves! They make a delicious seasoning in soups and can be frozen for later use.
Celery is a bi-annual and if left in the ground will bolt to a large umbel flower the second season attracting many beneficial insects.
Planting time - seed indoors 10 weeks before frost free date for your area.
Matures in - 100 days
Height - 24-30 inches
Germinates in - 15-20 days depending on soil temperature and moisture. Celery seed likes warm daytime soil but cooler nighttime temperature.
Sowing Depth - 1/8 inch
Thinning - when plants are 2-4 inches tall and danger of frost is past, transplant into the garden 15 inches apart. Celery is a thirsty plant and will turn 'stringy' if the soil around the plant is allowed to dry out. Water consistently with 2-3 inches per week.
