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!

Alive and Growing April 30, 2019
Reviewer: Dan Pierce from South Haven, MI United States  
The plants are doing great but I don't expect them to really take off and be ready for cutting and using in the itching until next spring. They are getting established and looking good. Looks like I can use some leaves in soups soon. Been making a lot of fall soups using herbs from the garden: garlic, Chives, greens and basil.

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.

Cutting Celery April 30, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Ocala, FL United States  
This plant arrived with yellowing leaves on the bottom and seems to have been in an area where it was struggling for light. The stems were long and limp. When transplanted it was falling over and had to be staked. The stems are much more sturdy and upright now.

Didn't Know About This Herb May 1, 2017
Reviewer: Connie Parrin from BLUFFTON, SC United States  
Wow - this is a tasty herb.  It looks and has the texture of Parsley but tastes like celery - go figure.  It grows pretty fast - great for adding to a salad.  You get the celery flavor without hunting for celery pieces!

great little plant September 2, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Egg Harbor City, NJ United States  
I love the flavor of my Cutting Celery. It turned into a good sized Plant since I got it this Spring. Seems like the more I cut it, the more it grows.
