CELERY, Chinese Pink
Seeds per pack: ~200
Germination: 89% (Packed for 2023).
This light pink celery, almost a bubble-gum color, originated in China. Our seed comes from our friend at Wild Garden Seeds in Oregon. In China, celery is believed to have cooling properties that act as an anti-inflammatory in the digestive tract to calm and soothe the body. Commonly used as a flavoring in the base of Chinese cooking, pink celery is used in northern China as a specialty, high-end ingredient that is served at gourmet restaurants. This easy-to-grow variety has a strong flavor and is a great choice for beginning gardeners. Consider harvesting it young and eating it like cilantro with periodic sowing for continuous harvest.
