Alexanders
Smyrnium olusatrum
A biennial relative of Celery and Angelica, once widely cultivated in the Mediterranean for its fleshy petioles before Celery became a well-domesticated vegetable. MM. Vilmorin’s The Vegetable Garden (1885) describes the growing technique. Seed is sown in flats or in place during late August. After about 8 weeks of wet chilling hardy seedlings emerge, and are transplanted as soon as they can be handled. Leafstalks are hilled (like Celery) as they quickly grow through early spring, and are eaten prior to bolting in early summer. The flavor is related to Celery, but milder. Said to have been a daily part of Alex The Great’s diet, hence the name. ‘Spose to be good for you. Definitely good for beneficial insects.
