Apium graveolens var. dulce

110 days — A very old English variety of celery, 'Brydon's Prize Red' celery originated from Manchester and was introduced in about 1849. A late variety, it withstands frost well. Its stalks are relatively short, thick, very crisp, with a fine flavor. The outer leaf stalks are green tinged with dull red and inside they are pale pink. All parts of the plants can be used — stalks, leaves, seeds — it is an excellent variety for soups and stews or any recipe calling for good celery flavor.

Very rare. We received our seed stock from the USDA GRIN. The accession number is G 28514. Each packet contains 0.25 gram, which is approximately 225 seeds.
So Delicious, and So Easy to Grow!
It's so easy to germinate, and hardy too! It's been out in my main garden since March and has withstood snow, hail, low 20's temps and a wind chill of 19˚F (albeit was covered with plastic during the coldest periods) with no ill effects save for one single leaf that developed a white tip where it had touched the plastic during the freezing weather. I've already been eating it and the flavor is just a wee bit stronger flavor than Tall Utah, but yet sweeter (if that makes any sense). This is my new go-to celery!
