History:
Peppermint Stick Celery, also known as Candy Stripe Celery, has a fascinating history dating back to its origins in Europe. This unique variety is distinguished by its pale green stalks adorned with vibrant red stripes, reminiscent of a peppermint candy. While not as widely cultivated as traditional green celery, Peppermint Stick Celery has garnered attention for its striking appearance and crisp, refreshing flavor.

Culinary Uses:
Peppermint Stick Celery offers a delightful crunch and a subtly sweet flavor, making it a versatile ingredient in various culinary applications. Its decorative appearance makes it an excellent choice for garnishing dishes, adding a pop of color and texture to salads, soups, and appetizers. The tender stalks can be enjoyed fresh as a nutritious snack or incorporated into recipes for added depth of flavor. Whether used raw or cooked, Peppermint Stick Celery adds a unique twist to any dish.

Growth Habit & Planting Instructions:
Being a biennial plant, Peppermint Stick Celery typically grows foliage in the first year and produces seeds in the second year. Plant seeds indoors 10-12 weeks before the last expected frost date, as celery has a long growing season. Transplant seedlings outdoors after the danger of frost has passed, spacing them 8-10 inches apart in rows. Ensure the soil remains consistently moist and provide ample sunlight or partial shade for optimal growth. Mulching around the plants can help retain moisture and suppress weeds. Harvest stalks when they reach the desired size, typically around 10-12 inches in length, by cutting them at the base with a sharp knife. With proper care and attention, you can enjoy a bountiful harvest of crisp and flavorful Peppermint Stick Celery.
