Pascal Celery
Apium graveolens secalinum 'Pascal'
Uses: Culinary/Medicinal Duration: Annual
When to Sow: Spring Ease of Germination: Easy
Pascal is the precursor that transformed celery into the thick fleshy form we know today. Named after Henri Pascal who discovered the first plants in his celery field in 1884, the variety was improved upon by Vilmorin, the French seed company. The variety went on to spawn many more varieties and radically changed celery as a crop on both sides of the Atlantic. But as much as this heirloom belongs among the vegetables, its lush dark green leaves are also terrific as a fresh herb. Added at the last minute, the fresh-chopped leaves add a seductive nutty flavour to soups, stews, and salads. Ht. 50-60cm/20-24".
