Celery was first used as food in Italy in the Middle Ages.

White celery, which farmers grew away from the sunlight, was the most common variety, and it is still popular in Europe. A green-stemmed celery was developed in the United States in the 1940s and was successfully introduced into New Zealand in the 1960s. New Zealanders prefer celery to be bright green. Varieties are now available with little or no stringiness.
