A range of red shades from burgundy to brilliant red and even blanched to golden pink, all with green foliage. From the breeding talents of Frank Morton who crossed the heirloom, Giant Red with Ventura.
Start seeds indoors 8 weeks before last frost. Seedlings are slow to start. Transplant outdoors 10 inches apart when 1-2 sets of true leaves emerge. Celery is a heavy feeder and needs plenty of moisture. Nutrient deficiencies can affect the quality of the stalks and insufficient water can result in tough, fibrous texture. Once the stalks have formed, you can harvest the plant at once or try cutting the outer stalks and leaving the young ones to grow.
