Leaf Celery- Amsterdam
Apium graveolens secalinum
- Also known as "Cutting Celery"
- Grown for its flavourful leaves
Biennial but often grown as an annual. Compact plants with small hollow stems and fine highly aromatic curled leaves. Grown for its leaves which are mostly used as a flavouring in soups, stews, stir fries and as a garnish. They have a stronger flavour than regular (stalk)celery and can be used both fresh and dried. Stalks are also used for flavouring but are normally discarded before eating as they can become fibrous. Also known as Smallage, Cutting Celery and Wild Celery. Can be grown in containers.
