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.
