Sir is this used as vegetable anywhere. Here in panipat a common wild plant
Apium graveolens is a common wild plant in wet places. The cultivated celery (petioles and leaves as vegetable) and celeriac (root vegetable) were formerly recognised as var. dulce, but now relegated to synonymy of A. graveolens.
Apiaceae (Umbelliferae) Week: Apium graveolens from California, Celery and Celeriac: Apium graveolens photographed from California stores. Leaf stalks are sold as celery where as the fleshy underground roots as celeriac.

Very nice to see, …
did you buy the roots and eat stew or something? How did you like it… if not next time do…
Celery and celriac are grown separately and are different…
the celery stalks have to be grown in blanching mounds so they remain green/light and juicy..
its also a different variety : Celery : Apium graveolens var. dulce.
Its medicinal properties for kidney health is unrivaled.
but he root is wonderful to cook and eat, just like turnips.
it does not require mounding of soil.
its name is Celeriac: Apium graveolens var. rapaceum.
The seeds are sold separately
I have been trying to teach them the difference, …some are delighted that they have a treasure on hand.
others just uproot the haul and say never!!!
Yes … I had recorded this in my last trip, but perhaps not updated my Apiaceae folder. Here it is
But my third photograph in the original is definitely different. Can you please comment on this … please.
I am uploading both so that you can comment better, first
with rounded roots clicked in 2010 and second in 2014, both labelled as
I get the feeling that mine with slender roots, labelled in stores as Celery root, may actually be Parsely root.
It is getting me confused. Net shows both var. dulce and var. rapaceum with rounded rough roots.
Perhaps clue may be here
In quick succession you have clarified stuff below. and my response is also below
the first on the left is celeriac, one can see the flat stacks
the right some root that has the tough brown ring, perhaps the second year growth, of parsley or some such
i cant tell from the picture
if i was in that predicament in the store
i would buy the one that showed a slightest green bud, stalk leaf on
in just a few days in the summer or indoor heated rooms in winter, on a sunny windowsill…
it would sprout and voila i would have my answers
many people also like to get “homegrown” leaves …. a second harvest that way…
parsley, celery and green onions are favorites of these frugal gourmands…
your last one tells the tale
the parsley grown for roots is a bit different the one on the left above is that category.
Parsley roots for parsley grown for leaves is skinny compared to the root above.
Celeriac roots are round surfaced all wrinkled/deformed and tough to skin out, but worth the effort
