Two categories of Chinese celery exist: Green Chinese celery and White Chinese celery. The former is taller, with green petioles, high yielding, more aromatic. Green Chinese celery can be divided into Solid Chinese celery, which has solid petioles and Hollow Chinese celery with a hollow core inside the petiole. Solid Chinese celery is slow bolting and tolerant of storage and shipment. Hollow Chinese celery is easy bolting in spring, but tolerant to heat and suitable for summer cropping.
White Chinese celery: yellowish white or white petioles with green leaves. Popular in some southern part of China.
