VEG­ETABLE OF THE MONTH

NZ Grower - - Election 2017 -

Cele­riac is a type of cel­ery, cul­ti­vated for its root. It is known in Eng­land, Europe, Asia and In­dia. In Amer­ica it is known as cel­ery root. Cele­riac has a unique flavour and is very re­fresh­ing even when raw. The short stem and up­per part of the roots grow into a cream-green coloured, round shape about 10-15 cm in di­am­e­ter. The skin is tex­tured and ridged. The flesh is creamy-white and firm but not as firm in tex­ture as car­rots.
