Just a thought - if celery isn't earthed up it will be green and stringy. But without a photo can't really get any further. Does it smell like celery? Taste a bit - you can always spit it out and rinse your mouth out if you find it tasted quite different. I have seen a fungus expert test poisonous toadstools like that!!!
