Celeriac, Celery Root

Apiaceae (Umbelliferae)
Annuals, Vegetables

This form of celery is grown for its large, rounded, edible roots rather than for leafstalks; this is the “celery root” sold in markets. Roots are peeled, then cooked or used raw in salads.

Grow plants 6–8 in. apart in rows that are spaced 1 1/2–2 ft. apart. Harvest when roots are 3 in. across or larger—about 100 to 120 days after transplanting.

‘Brilliant’ and ‘Mentor’ are among several improved varieties.
