Note: Shipping unavailable to WA
An ultimate root to bloomer, that can be used for all of its bulb, stem and leaves, and seed, which are an important spice. Bulb has white flesh which discolours less than other varieties when cooked, while stem and leaves has a strong celery flavour. Will grow well into cold weather, with the cold helping to covert the starches into sugars.
