Celery Leaf, White Queen (Organic)
Apium graveolens. 70 days.
Bright-green, aromatic leaves atop long thin, white stems give White Queen a stark visual contrast from the classic western stem celery. Thrives in cool fall weather, overwinters easily, and sometimes grows back vigorously as a second and third year perennial. This leaf celery is a Chinese variety with a strong flavor that is used more as an herb than a vegetable. Perfect for Chinese food recipes that include both stems and leaves. Strong flavors are a great addition to stir fry, soups, and Thai dishes that call for celery leaf. The unique white stems make for a captivating addition to market displays. White Queen is a celebration of biodiversity within the celery family.
