Celery root also known as celeriac is a root vegetable closely related to celery, parsley and parsnips. When growing, the leaves and stalk of the plant resembles the celery. Its taste has a nutty, earthy, and slightly sweet flavor with notes of celery and parsley.
Monitor the soil regularly to make sure it’s moist. Snap off any lateral leaf shoots to get a smooth crown. Towards the end of July, remove some of the outer leaves to make the root grow larger and smoother, then I cover it with soil or mulch to keep it blanched and tender.
This mint, rather than spearmint, gives the authentic mojito taste. Mojito Mint has a much milder flavor. While recipes call for any available variety of Spearmint, the real mojito can only be made with the true Mojito Mint.
Mint plants need about 1 to 2 inches of water every week, depending on the conditions. This includes both rain and your supplemental watering.
