(Apium graveolens) Charles Davis of Harvard university states that archaeological remains in Switzerland suggested humans have been transporting celery seeds as early as  4,000 BC. Archaeological data also suggest that Chinese celery also known as leaf or Nan Ling has been cultivated since at least the 5th century. Celery's wild ancestor is by nature a marshland plant. Today it has been adapted for your farm and home gardens although it still requires moisture retentive soil that doesn't dry out quickly. Various varieties of celery often carry rich flavor and make for an excellent ingredient for soup and stocks.
