Why Grow It
If you like the taste of celery, but find it a little cumbersome, then celeriac is the vegetable for you. Celeriac has a similar flavour to celery, but is grown for its knobbly, turnip-shaped swollen stem.
As vegetables go, celeriac is ugly as sin, but don’t let that fool you – it tastes delicious. It’s very hardy and stores extremely well. A decent crop of celeriac can see you right through the winter months to late March.
Celeriac is also referred to as knob celery or turnip-rooted celery.
