Celery - Tango F1
This is a self-blanching variety with beautiful apple-green, smooth stems with good flavour and texture for that all important celery crunch. Celery Tango has good bolting resistance and stands well during hot weather for reliable crops.
Sow seeds from mid March to April under glass for transplanting outdoors, thinly in seedtrays or pots of good seed compost at 15-20C. Sow on the surface of the firmed compost and cover with a very fine layer of compost or vermiculite. Transplant when seedlings are large enough to handle into modules or small pots of compost and maintain a minimum temperature of 15C. Harden off and plant outside in well-prepared soil once all frost risk has passed. It prefers moist, fertile, well-drained soil. Harvest from July onwards until heavy frosts.
