More aromatic and flavorful than regular celery, Afina is a cutting and seasoning celery that does not produce an enlarged stalk. An easy grower, it reaches about 18 inches tall, looks like flat-leafed parsley and is packed with big celery flavor. The leaves and hollow stalks are great for snacking right out of the garden, embellishing salads and flavoring soups and stews. Both stocks and leaves are cut at a younger, more tender stage than regular celery. It may also be dried for later use.
Easy to grow and more heat tolerant than other celery varieties. Long, slender and hollow, the snow white stalks have a stronger celery flavor than common American celery. Indispensable to Asian soups or stews, but well-suited to other recipes calling for celery. The leaves can also be pickled, used in stir-fries, served as a garnish, or blanched and chopped for potato salads and slaws.
