Popular French celery with upright heads packed with crisp, flavourful stalks. Early to mature and with a vigorous habit, Elne is medium tall with thick bright green ribs and dark green leaves. Easy to blanch with straw, paper, mulch or boards to get white stalks. Seed germinates slowly but ensure that the seed mix stays moist. Transplant out when weather has become warm and settled.
Matures 90 days from transplant.
