Tango Celery - Organic


Tango Celery - Organic

(90 days) Open-pollinated. The dance originated in South America but the celery is from Bejo in Holland. Adam Tomash and June Zellers, 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.

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.

Minimum germination temperature 40°, optimal range 59–70°. Ideally, fluctuating temperatures 68° day, 59° night. Days to maturity are from date of transplanting, not seeding.
