In ancient times, the Greeks considered celery to be a holy or sacred herb that was given to the winners of sporting events. On the contrary, the Romans valued celery for its culinary uses rather than symbolism or religion. In more recent history, celery was first domesticated by the Italians in the 17th century.
The celery plant is native to the Mediterranean region and was cultivated over three thousand years ago. Celery is a biennial herbaceous plant of the Umbelliferae family, which also includes carrots, parsley, fennel, dill and anise. It is botanically named Apium graveolens. Its wild ancestor was called "smallage," a bitter tasting marsh plant that was used primarily as a medicine. Celery was first recorded as a food plant in France in 1623.
