Celebrate Celery
Joshua Silva and the rest of O‘ahu Cooperative Extension will be holding a Celery Variety Trial Field Day on July 26, from 10 a.m. to noon, at the Poamoho Research Station. Participants will be able to observe nine commercially available celery varieties; learn their growth requirements and common diseases, and their management; and discuss other production practices. The majority of celery is imported into Hawai‘i, but there is a local demand for this aromatic, crunchy crop. In fact, this variety trial was initiated by the Hawai‘i Department of Public Safety, which expressed to Extension their desire to supplement their facilities’ menus with more locally grown crops, including celery. For more information on the field day or celery, please contact Joshua Silva at jhsilva@hawaii.edu or 808-342-8560.
