Celery root, a.k.a. celeriac, is a unique vegetable that is cultivated for its edible stem or hypocotyl as well as shoots. Unlike common celery, it has a bulbous hypocotyl with many small roots attached, making it more like a “root vegetable”. As a matter of fact, the ‘Diamant’ cultivar is predominant in North America.
