Recommendations for short-term storage of 7 days or less:
Keep celery away from ethylene-producing fruits and ripening rooms. Celery absorbs odors from other commodities such as apples and onions and should not be stored near them.
If discolored or damaged, ribs must be removed from stalk; do not pull rib out of bunch. Trace damaged rib down to the butt end and trim out with the point of a knife.
