Chinese Pink Celery (Organic 60-80 Days)

Slender and stunning cotton candy pink stalks are earlier and easier to grow compared to the large stalked European varieties with more crunch and flavor; herbal with a hint of salty notes. Use both the leaves and stalks, try it raw or pickled, or add to stir-fries, soups, stews, and stocks.
