Celery Leaf, Hollow Pipe of Malines (Organic)

Apium graveolens. 70 days.

Light-green leaf cutting celery. Grows to 18” and is great in mirepoix and soups. Stems are also usable, but much smaller than those of stalk celery. The flavor packs a punch that is most suitable for cooking; a little goes a long way. This vigorous biennial leaf makes a great addition to the herb garden and contributes wonderful celery flavor without the stringy, fibrous stems. A must-have in the garden for anyone that makes their own soup stock. A Belgian heirloom from Malines (the French name for the town of Mechelen), sourced originally from Belle Epoch Seed Company, Belgium.

Geographical Origin

Sow in pots indoors March through April. Germination in 2-3 weeks. Transplant in fertile soil when plants are 3” tall, to 4-8” centers for celery leaf and 12″ centers for celeriac/celery. Keep well fertilized, watered, and cultivated. Harvest leaves as needed or whole plants when mature.

Seed Saving

Collect seeds in second year from 15 or more plants for replanting or culinary use. Cut seed stalks when seeds are dry, thresh by hand, dancing, or hitting seed stalk against sides of a bucket. Winnow and screen to clean. Isolate from other A. graveolens by at least ¼ mile.

    I didn’t thin them as well as I should have, but they were still very productive and I really enjoyed having this growing for culinary use. Threw the leaves and thin stalks into soups, jambalaya, sauces, etc. next time I will thin or space better to see if I can get taller stalks, but the flavor and production was still great!

    Love this stuff!!! Grew to over 18″. Wonderful Bloody Mary stir sticks without the bland normal celery. In Alaska, Zone 1-2 in a raised bed. Weird summer. But at the end of August beautiful plants. Prepping to chop and freeze a lot. In 18″x18″ plot!
