Would like to try growing celeriac, I live on the Whangaparaoa Pen., Auckland, wonder if it would grow here or if wrong climate? Also, if ok, which variety would grow best here.....am trying to lose weight and read celeriace chips better diet option than potatoes? Many thanks, Ruth.

If you can grow celery you should have no trouble growing celeriac. Check out your local seed companies for appropriate varieties. Trust this helps.
