The name celeriac concerns the edible roots of celery (lat. Apium graveolens).

The edible green stalk of the plant is commonly referred to as celery.

Both vegetables are very nutritious but, as usual, the root is relatively rich in carbs and sugars while the green’s percentage share of the dietary fiber in carbs is much higher.

Both types of celery can be eaten raw or cooked. You can use them as an ingeredient in soups or fresh salads.
