Description: Familiar addition to many Asian soups and stews, these pencil thin stalks can be harvested starting at 60 days. Less crunchy than other varieties typically found in the US, gives a stronger, more authentic flavor. Grows 12-18" high.
Planting Instructions: 60 days. Sow seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before last frost. Scatter seeds on top of a sterile potting mix in flats or pots. Cover with a thin layer of soil,1/8-1/4" thick. Keep evenly moist until germination, typically 2-4 weeks and warm, 70-75F. Transplant outdoors after the danger of frost has passed and the plants have at least 2 sets of true leaves. Harden off plants 7-10 days before transplanting. Set plants 9-12" apart in well-prepared soil that is extremely rich and well-drained. Choose a location with full sun. Water them well. Celery is a heavy feeder, so fertilize every 2-3 weeks during the growing season. Harvest outer stalks, then entire plant at the end of the season.
