  • CULTIVATION

The cultivation and harvesting of celeriac occurs primarily in Northern Europe and throughout the Mediterranean Region. Celeriac growing also occurs in North Africa, Siberia, and Southwest Asia and even minimally in North America, where the cultivar โ€˜Diamantโ€™ is most likely cultivated. The plant is indigenous to the Mediterranean and has long been a popular root veggie in a variety of European cuisines. Celeriac root can be harvested at most any time, but as mentioned is easier to manage when the root is on the smaller side.ย 

Celeriac, Apium graveolens var. rapaceum, is also often referred to as celery root, knob celery, turnip-rooted celery and German celery. Celeriac plants are cool hardy and the root itself has a lengthy storage life of about three to four months, provided it is stored between 32 to 41 F. (0-5 C.) with moist conditions and the foliage removed. Despite being a root veggie, celeriac contains very little starch comparatively, between 5 and 6 percent by weight.

  • USES

The Celeriac, a member of the parsley family (Umbelliferae), may be eaten sliced, grated, roasted, stewed, blanched, mashed. The exterior of the root is knobby, brown in hue, and must be peeled to reveal the brilliant white interior prior to use. Although cultivated for the flavorful root, celeriac plants are a nice addition to the garden with spring green foliage that is predominantly pest resistant.ย

  • FUN FACT

Although the leaves are edible, celeriac plants are grown for their fairly large root or hypocotyls. Smaller is better in this case, as the larger root tends to become tough and harder to deal with peeling and cutting. The root is used either raw or cooked and tastes much like common garden variety celery stalks with which it shares some lineage.
