Merlin is a wonderful European variety developed especially for home gardens. These early producing, vigorous plants reliably yield tall 12 inch tender stalks. Enjoy Merlin right from the garden as an easy, cooling treat, and harvest the juicy stalks for fresh salads or crunchy sweet snacks. Add them to soups, stews and many other dishes. Air dry the leaves to use in winter cooking. Celery is an excellent source of vitamin K as well as folate and potassium.
