Storage Tips:

Susceptible to wilting if exposed to high temperatures and low humidity; ethylene gas will produce yellowing.

Handling Tips:

If discolored or damaged ribs must be removed from the stalk, do not pull rib out of bunch. Trace damaged rib down to the butt end and trim out with the point of a knife. Rinse whole fruits and vegetables in clean running water prior to using.

Did You Know?

Using a celery stick to garnish a Bloody Mary originated in the 1960s at Chicago's Ambassador East Hotel. An unnamed celebrity got a Bloody Mary, but no swizzle stick. He grabbed a stalk of celery from the relish tray to stir his Bloody Mary and history was made.
