What Happens When You Put Celery in Food Coloring?

Answer

Celery that is placed in a cup of water with a few drops of food coloring will absorb the color. The food coloring doesn't get absorbed by the entire stalk, but it travels up the tiny tubes in the outer part of the stalk. If the celery still has leaves, the leaves will absorb the color for a vivid display. The process happens gradually over the course of an hour.
