Tango Celery - Organic


Tango Celery - Organic

Apium graveolens
(90 days) Open-pollinated. The dance originated in South America but the celery is from Bejo in Holland. June Zellers and the late Adam Tomash, who always grow astounding celery, selected Tango as the star of one trial. Impressed with the variety’s compact architecture and absence of punky centers, they grew massive dense plants even in close spacing. They say Tango is almost as nice as Ventura with not quite as good disease resistance. Once you taste its smooth tender sweet nearly stringless stalks, you’re going to want this dance. Note: Under conditions of fast growth, high temperatures and moisture it may exhibit an harmless condition that mimics a bacterial wilt.

Additional Information

Celery & Celeriac

  • Days to maturity are from date of transplanting, not seeding.
  • About 1925-3000 seeds/g.

Culture: Must be started indoors in early spring, 10–12 weeks before transplant. Minimum germination temperature 40°, optimal range 70–75°, needs fluctuating temperatures. After germination, ambient air temperatures can be reduced but remain above 55° until transplanting. For one week prior to transplanting, go light on watering. Transplant outdoors when daytime temperatures are above 55° and the nights do not dip below 40°. Virginian Pam Dawling suggests that falling apple blossoms are a good phenological sign that transplanting time for these crops has arrived. Young seedlings grow slowly, requiring rich moist soil to survive. Regular rainfall or irrigation is necessary for good growth, flavor and yields. Celery withstands light fall frosts but is killed by serious cold.
