Produces large uniform roots from upright plants resistant to celery leaf spot
Creamy-white flesh that remains firm despite the large size of the roots
Stores well but can be left in the ground over winter if covered
Celeriac ‘Mars’ produces large, uniform roots from upright plants that hold themselves well in the soil, resulting in less rain splash and better resistance to celery leaf spot. This modern breed boasts creamy-white flesh that remains firm despite the large size of the roots. Ideal for making homemade coleslaw – simply grate and enjoy the crunchy texture and subtle celery-like taste. After harvesting its roots from October to November, celeriac ‘Mars’ stores well but can be left in the ground over winter if covered with a 15cm (6″) layer of straw for protection. Height: 30cm (12″). Spread: 40cm (16″).
