With long pale green stalks and darker green leaves and are called a bungh. Related to carrots, fennel, parsnips and parsley
Sometimes called bunch celery (for obvious reasons) we consist of a group of pale green, succulent stems with thick, white bases which are joined at the bottom of the stalks to a crown at ground level. Each of our stick-like stems (which are crisp, crunchy and juicy) has branches at the top with green, serrated or saw-like edged leaves. Our stems are 'U' shaped with slight furrows or ribs running parallel to the stem. Both our stems and leaves can be eaten. We grow to 50-60cm long and are cut below the crown when we?re harvested.
Choose fresh bunches with tight formation. Avoid browned or cracked outside stalks. Refrigerate us unwashed in a plastic bag or airtight container. Use within 7 days.
A moderate source of vitamin C and a good source of vitamin A and dietary fibre.
