Definition
Celery (scientific name Apium graveolens) is a vegetable belonging to the family Umbelliferae, the same family of parsley and fennel. Coming from Europe, where it is cultivated since the 17th century, celery is widespread in the temperate regions of Europe, Asia, Africa, and America. The varieties of the same species include celery, celeriac (Prague giant celery), and salad celery (green celery).
Red celery is sown in March-April with broadcast sowing, and then is moved to the fields. It is harvested at the end of October-beginning of November.

  • Production Area: Orbassano (TO) and adjacent Municipalities.

  • Legislative Protection: Orbassano red celery is promoted by a special consortium, "Consorzio del Sedano Rosso di Orbassano", but at the moment does not enjoy a specific legislative protection.
