Undamaged good quality celery, can be stored for around 10 weeks with good temperature control at around 0ºC (32ºF) and high levels of humidity. Celery is ethylene sensitive, and will wilt quickly if exposed to low levels of humidity and high temperature. Celery can be pre-cooled by forced air cooling or hydro-cooling. Maintenance of air circulation around cartons containing celery is important to avoid overheating from respiration heat.
