Celery, also known as celeriac if a cultivar grown for its root, is a vegetable native to many parts of Europe, the Middle East, and northern Africa.  Wild celery is known as "smallage".  Many cultivars have been selected for various edible uses such as the leaves, root, seeds, and– most recognizably in the west– the fleshy stalks.
