General Information: 

Celeriac, also known as celery root, is a root vegetable that belongs to the same family as celery. It has a unique flavor that is often described as a combination of celery and parsley, making it a popular ingredient in soups, stews, and salads.

Before you begin growing celeriac, it's important to understand its specific requirements. Celeriac thrives in cool climates and requires a long growing season of approximately 120 days. It prefers well-drained soil that is rich in organic matter, with a pH level between 5.8 and 6.8.

Start by selecting a suitable location for your celeriac plants. Choose an area that receives full sun or partial shade, as celeriac can tolerate both. Ensure that the soil is prepared by removing any weeds and incorporating compost or well-rotted manure to improve its fertility.

Once your celeriac plants are established, it's crucial to provide them with proper care and maintenance. Keep the soil consistently moist, but avoid overwatering, as celeriac is susceptible to rot. Mulching around the plants can help retain moisture and suppress weeds.

Fertilize your celeriac plants regularly with a balanced organic fertilizer, following the manufacturer's instructions. This will ensure that they receive the necessary nutrients for healthy growth. Additionally, be vigilant for common pests such as aphids, slugs, and snails, and take appropriate measures to control them.

Harvesting celeriac is a rewarding experience. The roots are typically ready for harvest when they reach a diameter of 3-4 inches. Carefully dig around the plants and lift the roots from the ground. Trim off the leaves and store the roots in a cool, dark place with high humidity to maintain their freshness.
