CULTURE OF CELERY.
IALAMAZOO RECOGNIZED AS ONE OF
ITS CHIEF CENTERS.
Hollander Han Ai na itlld IB

Kalamazoo celery Is ao well known in
every part of this country that the name
is used for all the better kinds of cel
ery, and, like Bice Point oysters and
Little Neck clams, the guarantee con
tained in the name sells the article to
the exclusion of other brands. The ex
cellence of this celery is said to be doe
to three things -good seed, dark, beary
soil and care in growing and bleaching
it. Careful packing might be added.
But as any gardener can select good
seed and gie the plants good culture
Kalamazoo must excel in the soil or
better natural conditions as a celerr re
gion. The celery meadows are Just outside
of the town of Kalamazoo, north and
south of the' city, and surrounded by
bills, divided crosswise by a high ridge,
on which the houses are built. The
meadows are about three miles long
and a mile wide. These bottom lands
are not common farming lands, but are
composed of a peculiar form of black
muck, the result of vegetable decompo
sition, and formerly they were ao rich
that no fertilisers wero needed. Mot
more than a dozen years ago very little
celery was raised on these meadows
and none for shipment to other mar
kets. Joseph Dankly, the florist, was
one of the pioneers in the industry, rec
ognizing the peculiar value of the
muck soil for celery. He owned one of
the earliest celery farms, and it is re
ported that he amassed a fortune from
the business before it was injured by
In recent years the output has been
so enormoJs that prices have dropped
from 80 cents to 10 cents perdoaen,
and many growers have been complain
ing. The seasons of 1892-3 were com
paratively poor ones, and a number of
the growers left their farms to engage
in the same business in the suburbs of
New York, but tbny anon returned to
their home town. The growers are near
ly all Hollanders, and tbey live in
dwellings on their small holdings,
which generally consist of from five to
ten acres. They are a frugal, industrious
race, and they adopt the most advanced
system of intensive farming. Five acres
here easily support an ordinary Holland
family, and there is no doubt but the
head of it saves money.
The city of Kalamazoo is one of the
prettiest in the country, and it owes
not a little of this to the industry of
the celery growers. The amount of cel
ery shipped 'from the city varies from
year to year, but a conservative esti
mate places the average quantity at 60
tons per day from July 1 to Jan. 1.
This would mean about 8,600,000 doz
ens, and at 10 cents per dozen this would
amount to $360,000. As this is a very
low estimate, one is almost safe in say
ing that the industry nets the town at
least $500,000 a year.
The bunches of celery are packed in
wooden boxes and shipped to commis
sion men. The boxes pro made in the
town, giving employment to a number
of mechanics. They are about the size
of peach crate, 34 inches long, 16
inches wide and 6 to 8 inches deep.
Fertilisers are now need freely upon
the already rich bottom lands, and ev
ery time a grower takes a load of celery
into the town he brings bark a load of
fertilizer. It is claimed that four crops
of celery are raised in one season on the
land, but this is not literally true. The
farmers make four plantings, which
mature from July to December, but
these can hardly bo called four crops.
The first planting is made early, and as
this celery must be bleached with
boards it ia an inferior grade. The old
saying is that celery is not fit to eat
until after the first frost, and in a scne
this is true, but modern conditions of
our markets demacd that celery shall be
ready for use all the year round. The
southern growers send it north early in
summer, and since people will buy this
vegetable out of season the Kalamazoo
growers begin to send their product to
the cities much earlier than five years
Tho question of profit in celery grow
ing is a disputed one, and, like straw
berry farming, tbcro are stories current
of farmers making $300 per acre, while
others claim that if they make $50 per
acre thCV are dninir Atfiroontnern
O., where tho largest celery farm under

profits are said to average between $200
and $400 per acre. There are nearly 100
acres planted with celery on that farm,
