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.

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.

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.
