Product Details

  • Light Required: Full sun.
  • Yield: High yields.
  • Foliage: Parsley-like foliage.

  • Days To Maturity: 70 Days.
  • Zone: 3-9 annual.
  • Germination: Can take two to three weeks to germinate.
  • Soil Requirements: Rich, moist soil. A generous amount of compost or rotted manure worked deeply into the soil before planting helps retain moisture and add nutrients.
  • Seed Count: Approximately 300 seeds per packet.
  • Pruning: Throughout the season, remove any lateral and lower shoots to help the root develop a smooth surface. Remove some of the outer leaves to make the root grow larger and smoother, then I cover it with soil or mulch to keep it blanched and tender.
  • Comments: Makes an excellent and easy to grow alternative to stalk celery. Medium large round roots are very smooth, with crisp, celery-flavored flesh that's great for fresh eating and delights in a variety of dishes. Ehud is an early maturing variety that keeps well for months. Very high yields. 70 DAYS.
