Celery seed is actually the dried fruit of the Apium graveolens plant or "smallage", a close relative to the vegetable. The seeds are extremely small and light brown in color, which give the flavor and aroma of celery. Celery seed has a slightly bitter taste similar to parsley. The ground seeds have more bitterness and should not be overused.
