Petroselinum crispum neapolitanum

72 days — 'Italian' parsley has deeply cut, dark green leaves with a rich, flavor that is generally stronger than other curled types. Parsley becomes very bitter as the plant starts to flower. Parsley has been cultivated for centuries and is used as a garnish, palate cleanser, flavoring in soups, salads, and as a seasoning in other recipes. Some varieties, like 'Hamburg Rooted', are used as a vegetable.

A biennial plant, parsley is typically grown as an annual. Each packet contains two grams, which is approximately 300 seeds.
Medicinal Herbs Herbalists have used it as a breath freshener, digestive aid, and in tea to treat high blood pressure and rheumatism. Because it is high in vitamins A and C, it has also been used as a quinine substitute to treat malaria.
These are very flavorful and hardy plants.
These are very flavorful and hardy plants. I've watched them wilt to the ground under several days of below freezing temps then perk right back up when the sun came out and the temps went above freezing. I was able to pick fresh parsley on the warmer days all the way up to mid December.

First time gardener. I grew them in raised beds in a medium of mushroom compost and pine fines. I neglected them, and they just kept growing. They grew all spring and well into the fall. They were actually, the last plant in the garden before I moved and had to tear it down, and I hadn't been there in months. I plan on growing these as a cut-and-come-again crop for years to come.
