Because of our commitment to research and innovation, it's no wonder 33% of America's celery can be traced back to Duda Family Farms.

Duda Family History Photos

With family farming roots that go back nearly a century—and a team of celery breeders with a combined 180+ years of experience—it's not hard to see why the Duda brand was nicknamed the "Celery King." We're committed to living up to that legacy with the crop that started it all.

Industry Leadership

Innovation is as integral to our identity as is our family farming foundation. With our team of scientists and lab personnel, we carefully analyze the components that make-up celery flavor to ensure our proprietary varieties taste sweeter than any other commercially available seed varieties. With our state-of-the-art flavor and nutrition laboratory—set up with an analytical “tongue” and “nose”—we have made significant investments to better understand and work with nature to perfect growing the sweetest, crispiest varieties available. That means we’re continually studying and testing our product to ensure our customers have access to the highest quality and best tasting celery in the market.
