Description

Par-Cel Leaf Celery - So Easy to Grow

A curly, cutting celery that looks like triple curled parsley and tastes like celery. An 18th Century heirloom, this Dutch variety is a 3' tall celery in leaf form instead of stalks.

Withstands heat and drought, and is remarkably cold tolerant, lasting well into late fall. Very vigorous once established.

History

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.

Uses

The sharp, refreshing flavor of these leaves, fresh or dried, perks up soups, stews, stuffing's, stir-fries, casseroles, salads, dressings, pickles, etc. Can also be used as a garnish.

    Excellent choice for hot climates.

    This is a durable biennial plant for the southern gardener. It endures temps in excess of 100 degrees and wilts lightly with freezing temps only to rebound. Delightful celery flavor that is good fresh or dried.

    Well worth growing

    This is great for containers, and is usable in salads, and cooking. It holds up well in hot weather. The leaf is not curly, and is very similar to flat leaf parsley.

    By far the best

    Grew this variety for some years, but the seed became hard to find and we tried other varieties of leaf celery. This is the only one that thrived in our sometimes crazy Ozark climate and that also had the rich flavor we prized. So glad to see that Terroir Seeds is carrying it.

    Distinct celery taste!

    Posted by Francis Land House, VA on Jul 19th 2017

    Germination and growth were good. Leaves had a distinct celery taste. We planted one half of a bed with it and the other half with Utah bunch celery. The Utah went to seed while Par-Cel continued to produce some good leaves. A nice alternative to bunch celery. Over all did well in this area.
