Also known as "Giant Pascal Celery", "Winter King" or "Pascal Giant Celery". 

Giant Golden Pascal is a French Heirloom that grows to great heights. 

Touted in all the old catalogs as THE celery for winter use.

The celery can reach 2' tall and have 2" thick succulent, nutty stems. 

Remember celery likes water and if stems get dry or hollow it is because you are not watering enough. 

Celery also likes rich, sandy organic soil.

"The best of this class.  Forms solid, crisp stalks of incomparable flavor.  Of strong growth, producing perfectly blanched stalks when hilled up properly.  Of rich, nutty flavor.  Blanches very easily and is very brittle.  A fine keeper, an excellent shipper, retaining color and fresh appearance a long time.  A favorite with Southern growers.  For mid-winter and ealry spring use it is excellent."

Planting Tips for Heirloom Celery:

Start indoors 12 weeks prior to transplanting outdoors.

Celery seeds are one of the smallest vegetable seeds!  Use sterile, fine soil and cover the seed by dusting a light covering.  Many people plant too deeply.  An easy way to lightly cover your fine/tiny celery seed is to use a flour sifter or large tea strainer and gently shake a coating over the seed. Keep soil moist (not soggy) and at 75 degrees.  Seedlings will emerge in 2-3 weeks.

Celery can be fussy, needing everything just right.  Good compost, kelp & bone meal mixed in with soil will add nourishment.  Start seedlings indoors by scattering seed on top of soil – must be kept moist at all times.  In 8-12 weeks when 5” tall, plant out in garden.  Consistent watering is essential.

Transplant outdoors when weather has settled and there are no more rapid temperature swings.  Bolting can be caused when night time temps get below 55 degrees.  So do not transplant to early.

Heirloom Celery needs a very rich, moderately acidic, organic soil and lots of water.   Feed organic fish emulsion and seaweed every two weeks till harvest.
