Well shaped smooth celeriac, vigorous roots, upright foliage. Round, relatively smooth skin with good inner quality. Suited to fresh market and storage.
Site & Soil
Celeriac has been bred from wild celery which originates from Northern Europe. They grow best in a soil that has been fertilized the previous season and not the current season. Too much nitrogen in the soil from manure etc. will encourage leaf growth rather than growth of the bulbous root.
The best soil is one that retains moisture but is also free-draining. Although those are the ideal conditions celeriac is very tolerant of soil conditions and will grow well on most sites.
They prefer a site which is in full sun but will tolerate part-shade very well.
When to Sow
In cooler areas, sow indoors or in a greenhouse / cold frame. Sow two seeds to a small pot (7.5cm / 3in) in early March.
