A native of the boglands of Eurasia, celery was well known in the middle Ages as a medicinal plant, but it wasn't used as food until much later.
The original celery was a biennial that grew in damp, marshy areas and had a pungent, medicinal flavor. Due to its unpleasant taste, it was not used as a vegetable until the Italians and French developed a sweeter tasting, thicker stalked variety in the 1500s.
