An early and disease resistant celery that's slow to bolt, Tall Utah 52-70 celery seeds produce really tall plants. Utah 52-70 is a tall, medium dark green celery with long, thick stalks that are sweet and crunchy. Overall plant height can be up to 75cm (30"), with the first joint appearing 26-28cm (10-11") up on the plants. This variety develops strong roots with good heart development. It holds its form and colour in the field well, and is strongly flavoured for use in the kitchen. Tall Utah 53-70 is recommended for home garden as well as commercial farm use, and produces impressive stalks with good market potential. It first appeared on the market in 1953, so technically it's an heirloom variety.
