CHARGER

« Back

CHARGER is a dark green, vigorous celery for harvesting in the cool of late Autumn/ Winter and early Spring. A direct replacement for Falcon, CHARGER has many of the attributes of its predecessor, it has finely ribbed, highly uniform petioles, is strong against cracking at the knuckles and shows strong tolerance to Septoria spotting. Although not quite as tall as Falcon, bunches of CHARGER are heavier.
