TANGO CELERY

If you want to grow a celery in your garden that’s tender and sweet, has excellent eating quality, and isn’t string, look no further! Tango Celery is an early producing, high yield variety with extreme smooth stalks. This variety is an improvement from older celery varieties, Tango does well in most climates and will tolerate imperfect growing conditions such as excess heat and lack of moisture. Smooth, tender stalks reaching 18-20″ tall, the best part is that all of this plant is edible! Apium graveolens.

Celery tends to have a long growing season (90+ days) and performs well under less-than-ideal growing conditions such as heat or moisture stress. We recommend starting your seeds in the 162-cell seed starting tray 10-12 weeks before you transplant. Seedlings will typically emerge in 2-3 weeks’ time. Celery likes soil temps averaging 70-75 degrees Fahrenheit. Tango Celery prefers 5 to 7 hours of full sun each day and loose, rich, well-drained soil with a neutral pH between 6.0 and 8.0. Once your celery is ready to be harvested, harvest your stalks by cutting the base at soil level with a knife. Celery needs 1-1.5" of water per week, it grows best when it has constant moisture.

DESI CHICKPEA

Desi Chickpea is a smaller, darker brown variety that have a thick coat. Desi chickpeas are very popular in Indian dishes. A cool-season, nitrogen-fixing cover crop that performs well when planted in early fall or spring. Rich in fiber content, Desi chickpeas are a popular variety used when making humus. 

Desi Chickpea produces a deep taproot that helps to break hardpans and condition soils for future plantings. It can be planted alone, but also works great when intercropped with Sorghum Sudangrass or Brown top Millet. We recommend planting Desi Chickpea as a cover crop after heavy nitrogen-feeding crops like corn, brassicas, or onions. Because the roots penetrate so deep into the soil, They can tolerate a light frost in late spring or early fall. Chickpeas usually flower 50 days after emerging from the soil. Plants are indeterminate, so they will continue to produce vegetation even after flowering.

Desi Chickpea can be grown in fall or early spring. We suggest planting in early/mid-fall with enough time for plants to establish before frost arrives. The seed can be broadcast and covered or planted with a precision planter like our Hoss Garden Seeder. If broadcast, we recommend raking or dragging the soil to ensure good seed-to-soil contact. This will improve germination and ensure you get solid coverage. As with all cover crops, it should be cut or mowed before going to seed to prevent any residual weed issues. Once cut, incorporate into the soil as green manure for best results. It can also be used as forage and works great as a component of a food plot mixture.
