This is a beautiful mix of Chinese Pink Celery and Giant Red Celery.

Chinese pink celery is a stunning bright pink celery. It is popular in high-end restaurants in northern China. The stalks are more slender than regular green celery, but it is easier to grow. The flavour is mild and slightly sweet, and nice and crunchy.

Giant Red Celery is a traditional English variety, beloved by generations of gardeners. It has a robust celery flavour, and is also easy to grow.

Both varieties are quite cold-tolerant- they survived just fine over the winter that got down to -15C, so at least zone 7. The flavour of both varieties will improve in fall when the weather cools down. Note that celery does tend to like lots of water for best flavour.

Growing Instructions

Surface sow the tiny seeds on the soil surface and press in about 8-12 weeks before last frost. Transplant outdoors after the last spring frost.
