Apium graveolens is a plant species in the family Apiaceae commonly known as celery (var. dulce) or celeriac (var.
rapaceum), depending on whether the petioles (stalks) or roots are eaten: celery refers to the former and celeriac to
the latter. Apium graveolens grows to 1 m tall.
The leaves are pinnate to bipinnate leaves with rhombic leaflets 3–6 cm long and 2–4 cm broad. The flowers are creamy-white, 2–3 mm diameter, produced in dense compound umbels. The seeds are broad ovoid to globose, 1.5–2 mm long and wide.
