FOOD TRIVIA and FOOD FACTS
The wild form of celery is known as smallage. It has a bitter taste, and the stalks are more stringy than our cultivated celery. Smallage was used by the ancient Chinese as a medicine, and the Greeks and Romans used it as a seasoning. It was in the 17th and 18th centuries that celery was developed by breeding the bitterness out of smallage.
