Crookham, offers this description: "CELESTIAL is a synergistic version of the widely adaptable variety Argent. You are sure to recognize an improvement in this old favorite. Celestial is a white variety,superb for home garden, fresh market and roadside stand." It does very well here. Sweet, tender, and consistent in size. Competitive with Silver King or Argent but a bit sweeter than either.
