Celery can grow to optimal heights from 45 to 60 centimeters. It has wide parsley-like green leaves and thick, juicy, ribbed stalks that join at a common base above the root. Celery, at its best, has a juicy and crunchy flesh with a mild salty flavor. Although celery is most often used for its stalks, its leaves are edible as well and have a concentrated celery-flavor.
Celery is available year-round.
Celery is part of the Umbelliferae family, which also includes carrots, parsley, fennel, dill and anise. It is botanically named Apium graveolens. Today, the United States cultivates over one billion pounds of celery in California, Michigan and Florida.
