An heirloom variety introduced in 1871 producing large 5" round crisp bulbous white roots with a wonderful piquant flavour, similar to celery. A versatile vegetable for mash, soups, stews or grated raw in salads. Stores well after autumn harvest.
·Sow 4-5mm deep from 4 weeks prior to the last frost under-cover with warmth at 65F. Germination can be extremely slow.
·When large enough to handle, plant to trays and grow on under cooler conditions. Temperature under 50F will encourage bolting.
·After all danger of frost has passed and soil has warmed plant to final growing position with 8-10 in between plants.
·Celeriac is a heavy feeder and requires a rich soil and constant moisture for best performance.
