Golden Self Blanching Celery Seed (85-103 days)

Introduced in 1886.  Golden Self Blanching Celery produces thick, crisp, juicy, deeply ribbed, tasty celery without the strings or bitter flavor of some other celery.  Reaches 18-23"s in height with ample water. Golden Self Blanching is a strong disease resistant variety that is obviously self blanching.  Celery hearts are thick and crunchy. 

1916 & 1932 Burpee Seed Catalog says...
"The best of all early “self-blanching” varieties. First introduced in America by us in 1884, this is decidedly better in quality than the White Plume. It is ready for use nearly as early, blanches as easily, and is larger in size, as well as finer in quality. It is of dwarf compact habit, with thick, solid, heavily ribbed stalks which blanch easily to a clear waxen yellow. When grown in rich moist soil the stalks are numerous, each plant being fully as thick through as the largest of the tall late sorts, and with a very large solid heart of beautiful golden-yellow stalks and leaves. The stalks are crisp and solid, free from stringiness and of most delicious flavor. Choice American-grown seed grown direct from the French."

"This is American grown seed produced from the dwarf French stock.  Of dwarf, compact growth with thick, solid, heavily ribbed stalks which blanch easily to a clear waxen yellow.  Crisp, solid, heavy, free from stringiness, and of most delicious flavor.  Yields of good crop."

1918 The Great Northern Seed Catalog says...
"This is the best celery for early use. Plants of a yellowish green color when young, but as they mature, the inner stems and leaves turn a beautiful golden yellow, which adds much to their attractiveness and makes the work of blanching much easier. The handsome color, crispness, tenderness, freedom from stringiness and fine nutty flavor of this variety makes it only necessary to be tried in order to establish it as the standard of excellence and as an early variety."

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 too early.

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

Seeding Rate for Heirloom Celery:

35,000-40,000 plants/acre,

Heirloom seeds are hardy, but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - don't let the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely, and don't overwater and possibly have them rot.
