Description / Tango Hybrid Celery Seeds

Days to Maturity: 85

An improved variety, Tango Celery is grown as a stem vegetable. Early maturing and easier to grow than most, Tango sets thick, extra smooth stalks that are sweet and tender, not stringy. Stalks and leaves can be eaten raw or boiled, braised, steamed, stewed, or stir fried. Celery is a good source of vitamin K. It also contains potassium and phytonutrients, predominantly carotenoids and flavonoids.

Typically grown as an annual, Tango Celery is a biennial to perennial that is a member of the carrot family (Apiaceae). The plant grows to about 2 feet tall and forms a basal rosette of dark green leaves, light-green stalks, and compact hearts the first year followed by white flowers the second year.

Tango Celery prefers 5 to 7 hours of full sun each day and loose, rich, well-drained soil with a neutral pH between 6.0 and 8.0. The robust plant is tolerant of abiotic stress, such as excessive heat and moisture. Consistent moisture is very important. It is also resistant to Fusarium 2.

A cool-season, semi-hardy vegetable, one of the first to be planted in the garden, celery seed can be direct sown into the garden as soon as the soil is workable in early spring, after the last frost date. But it can also be started indoors about 10 weeks before transplanting, spring and fall. It needs cold temperatures to germinate and grow and can withstand light frost and temperatures in the 28° to 32°F range. It grows best with temperatures in the 60° to 75°F range. Mulching helps to moderate soil temperature and to maintain soil moisture. Row covers protect plants from excessive cold and heavy frosts.

If you plan to start your seeds indoors, be sure to check out our Bio Dome Seed Starter Kit. With the Bio Dome, you can control the temperature, light, and soil mix to ensure your seeds become strong for transplant.
