Hi, what does the word "blanching" mean in the above context: (Compatible with (can grow beside): Not applicable as celery needs to be close together to encourage blanching)? Thanks, Miroslav Andjic

If you plant celery close together the stalks are protected from the sunlight and the outside leaves are a light green/white colour - blanched. Plant them far apart and the stalks are darker green and a bitter.

Blanching celery means that a portion of the stem is white instead of green.
