A stunning bright pink celery from China. This easy-to-grow variety completes the nutritional rainbow! Pink celery is popular in northern China, especially Beijing, where the attractive pink stalks are served in high-end restaurants. This tasty Asian type celery is a great choice for beginner gardeners, as it is much easier to grow than European-type celery. Flavor is yummy and lightly sweet, the texture is light and crunchy and eye appeal is unstoppable. Its brilliant bubblegum pink color makes it a truly delightful addition to the veggie patch and market display. Maintains its pink color even after it’s been cooked! Photo courtesy of Baker Creek.
Care: Plant 9-12″ apart in rows 18-24″ apart in sun or part shade. Keep soil consistently moist. Harvest outside stalks as needed.
Cold-tolerant plants that stand in the field for harvest as needed in late fall and early winter. May overwinter in mild seasons, or die back and sprout from the root in spring for an extra-early crop.
