(Apium graveolens) Celeriac is an underappreciated vegetable and a wonderful storage crop: hearty roots with a flavor akin to a cross between celery and parsley that is just lovely for Autumn themed risottos, gratins, and soups. In 2018 we did a field trial of all the OP celeriac varieties we could find in the marketplace. Monarch rose to the top as the clear winner with beautifully uniform production and shape and excellent eating quality, besting the also excellent and more widely available “Brilliant” in the size category. Beautiful softball-sized roots store all winter long with ease.
