Description:
Like the name suggests, Tendercrips is an extremely tender and crisp celery variety that is our go to for the celery to eat. Tendercrisp is a high-yielder and produces massive yet compact heads of celery. The stalks measure about 12" to the first joint, and take about 112 days to reach maturity. No one really knows where celery originated, though claims come from such diverse locations as Sweden, New Zealand, and Algeria.


Nutritional Value:
Celery is rich in vitamins and minerals with a low glycemic index. You'll enjoy vitamins A, K, and C, plus minerals like potassium and folate when you eat celery. It's also low in sodium. Plus, it's low on the glycemic index, meaning it has a slow, steady effect on your sugar levels.


Growing Instructions:
Celery grows best as a fall crop in most climates, so start your seeds about 10 weeks before the last spring frost. Soak them overnight to speed germination, then sow them in a flat in rows 1" apart; keep the soil moist and keep the flat out of direct sun. Germination often takes two or three weeks. When the plants reach about 2" tall, transplant them into pots; set them out in the garden when they reach 6" tall or after the last frost date. Space them 6-8" apart in rows 2-3' apart, putting them at the same soil level as in the pots. Make sure the soil is enriched with compost or other organic matter. For companion planting benefits, plant celery with tomatoes, cauliflower, or cabbage.
