Cutting Celery Plants

Apium graveolens

Known as Leaf Celery or French Celery

A more flavorful choice than its crunchier cousin, Cutting Celery is a leafy, aromatic herb that can be substituted for celery in dishes if you want to add flavor without the stringy fibers. Often mistaken for flat-leafed Parsley, Cutting Celery has a dark, glossy leaf with a serrated edge and small sprig-like stalks. The leaves and stems can be used to add flavor to salads, vegetables, stews and soups.

Related to the carrot family, this flavorful culinary herb packs a punch of taste into its slender stems and delicate leaves. Just a few sprigs of this savory herb will replace the taste of an entire bunch of store-bought celery.

Cuttiny Celery is used in Ayurvedic medicine for asthma, bronchitis and flatulence. NOT TO BE USED during pregnancy.

Trim this tenacious tender perennial's leaves often to encourage flavorful new growth. Though winter hardy, this anise flavored herb will grow well in pots or containers indoors and can be easily transplanted to the garden in the spring!

5 of 5 Cutting Celery June 18, 2019
Reviewer: Christine Bukovsky from Evergreen Park, IL United States  
The Growers Exchange is the only place I've found that sells this. What a great plant - I use the stalks as I would celery and the leaves as either a garnish or an herb in a salad. It also freezes very well so you can have it all winter. The plants arrived in good shape and it is thriving in my garden!

5 of 5 Happy buyer June 3, 2019
Reviewer: Carla B Peterman from Hico, TX United States  
This is my second order and the plants arrived in perfect shape..  (They never knew they had been in a dark box for several days)  I love Cutting celery and it grows very well here in Central Texas in the ground or in containers. With very little protection it grows year round and often reseeds itself

5 of 5 Looks like parsley. Rich celery taste. April 30, 2019
Reviewer: Lawrence from Hackensack from Hackensack, NJ United States  
Vigorous, tasty. A couple of leaves has the flavor punch of a stalk of the more familiar cultivar. Reminds me of the potency of lovage leaves.
