Organic Utah 52-70 Tall Improved (120 days)
Introduced by Ferry-Morse Seed Company in 1953
Imagine tall, organic, tasty crunchy organic celery grown in your own backyard. You know it has got to taste better than anything that came from the store.
Utah 52-70 is an improved celery that grows taller, with longer ribs, deeper green color and sweeter than the original Utah.
This organic variety does not need blanching. Disease Resistant for Brown Check, Western Celery Mosaic and Fusarium Race II.
1968 Buckerfield Seed Co. says...
"Edible stems 9 to 11 inches. Plant larger but just as compact as Utah 15. The best organic celery on the market."
As a new gardener, I wasn't sure about dust like seeds so I put a tiny bit in a small tray, sprinkled soil over them and hoped... Two days later LOTS of tiny little sprouts !
Sprouted well and is ready to go in my garden when it warms up a little more!
