Tall Utah celery is a variety of celery known for its tall, thick stalks and strong, robust flavor. Our variety available here is certified as organic.
To grow Tall Utah Celery, you will need:
- Rich, well-drained, fertile soil
- Cool temperatures (60-65F is ideal)
- Partial shade
- Seeds or seedlings
Prepare the soil by tilling or digging to a depth of at least 8 inches. Add compost or other organic matter to improve the soil's fertility.
Sow the seeds or transplant seedlings in the early spring, or in the fall in mild climates. Space the plants about 6 inches apart, and cover with 1/4 inch of soil.
Water the celery regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.
Fertilize the celery with an organic fertilizer every 4-6 weeks.
As the celery starts to grow, mound soil up around the base of the stalks to blanch them and make them more tender.
Harvest the celery when the stalks are thick and mature, usually about 70-80 days after planting.
