Celery – Tall Utah

$3.48

Fresh celery is much more aromatic and delicious than store bought. Tall Utah – an early and disease-resistant celery that’s slow to bolt – has medium green, broad, thick, well-rounded stalks. This crisp, stringless green celery with tightly folded hearts is sweet and smooth in the kitchen; holds its form and colour well in the field. Mature celery lasts into winter with light frost protection.
