The Q&A Archives: Cutting Celery

Question: Is the "Cutting Celery" listed in your catalog the same as the celery found in grocery stores? I noticed it was listed under herb seeds.

Answer: Cutting celery is different type of celery than the one you see in the supermarket. It's a leafy plant, resembling a flat leaf parsley, but it tastes like celery. I grew it last year, and used it as an herb in soups and other cooked dishes.<br><br>Regular (stalk) celery is difficult to grow, requiring precise conditions for good results. It needs a long growing season and should be blanched (by wrapping the growing stalks) to promote tenderness. <br><br>
