Celery is a marshland plant that has been cultivated as a vegetable since antiquity. Celery comes from the same family of plants which includes carrots, parsnips, parsley, and celery root. Celery has a long light green fibrous stalk tapering into leaves. Both stalks and leaves can be eaten and used in cooking. Raw celery stalks are crunchy and make a great healthy snack.
