$3.80 – $35.00
Apium graveolens. 80-100 days.
The classic American celery! An improved Tall Utah type, Ventura celery is named after the town Andrew grew up in. When he was a kid riding his bike around Ventura, California, he saw many fields of celery growing interspersed with strawberry fields and lemon orchards. Once one of the most common workhorse celery varieties, Ventura has recently become less common and has undeservedly been eclipsed by proprietary celery varieties. Ventura is productive and perfect for market farms and home gardens alike. It has great sweet flavor with that delicious celery crunch. We find celery tastes better when grown organically, giving it more of that celery zing – especially when given lots of fertility and water. Good fusarium and bolt resistance.
