Celery
(Apium Graveolens) is a marshland plant in the family Apiaceae that has been cultivated as a vegetable since antiquity. Celery has a long fibrous stalk tapering into leaves. Depending on location and cultivar, either its stalks, leaves or hypocotyl are eaten and used in cooking. Celery seed powder is used as a spice.

WikipediaEtymology
First attested and printed in English as "sellery" by John Evelyn in 1664, the modern English word "celery" derives from the French celeri, in turn from Italian seleri, the plural of selero, which comes from Late Latin selinon, the latinisation of the Ancient Greek: σέλινον, romanized: selinon, "celery". The earliest attested form of the word is the Mycenaean Greek se-ri-no, written in Linear B syllabic script.

Cultivation

  • The plants are raised from seed, sown either in a hot bed or in the open garden according to the season of the year
  • In North America, commercial production of celery is dominated by the cultivar called 'Pascal' celery.
  • Gardeners can grow a range of cultivars, many of which differ from the wild species, mainly in having stouter leaf stems.
  • The stalks grow in tight, straight, parallel bunches, and are typically marketed fresh that way.
  • They are sold without roots and only a small amount of green leaf remaining.
