Description

Dark green celery, bred for flavor | Slow to bolt, disease resistant

Days to Maturity: 80

Hadrian Celery, an F1 hybrid, is grown as a stem vegetable. The plant sets dark green stalks and has shown good tolerance to bolting. Stalks and leaves can be eaten raw or boiled, braised, steamed, stewed, or stir fried. Celery is a good source of vitamin K. It also contains potassium and phytonutrients, predominantly carotenoids and flavonoids.

A biennial to perennial, typically grown as an annual, Hadrian Celery is a member of the carrot family (Apiaceae). The plant forms a basal rosette of dark green leaves and shows a good resistance to fusarium.

Hadrian Celery grows best in locations with 5 to 7 hours of full sun each day and loose, rich, well-draining soil with a neutral pH between 6.0 and 8.0. Consistent moisture is very important.

A cool-season, semi-hardy vegetable, one of the first to be planted in the garden, celery seed can be direct sown into the garden as soon as the soil is workable in early spring, after the last frost date. But it can also be started indoors about 10 weeks before transplanting, spring and fall. It needs cold temperatures to germinate and grow and can withstand light frost and temperatures in the 28° to 32°F range. It grows best with temperatures in the 60° to 75°F range. Mulching helps to moderate soil temperature and to maintain soil moisture. Row covers protect plants from excessive cold and heavy frosts.

If you plan to start your seeds indoors, be sure to check out our Bio Dome Seed Starter Kit. With the Bio Dome, you can control the temperature, light, and soil mix to ensure your seeds become strong for transplant.
