Italian Parsley Plants

Petroselinum crispum

Herb gardening for flavor means that you have to add our delicious herb plants grown for exceptional taste.

Parsley 'Flat Leaf', also known as "Italian" Parsley has strong flavored leaves that make it the parsley associated with Italian dishes. This culinary herb is sometimes known as flat-leaf parsley has serrated leaves and a clean, slightly peppery taste. Its flavor is stronger than that of its ruffled cousin, curly-leaf parsley. It is often used as a garnish.The leaves are great fresh or dried, but we prefer using it fresh. Harvest Parsley early in the year as its flavor is best at this time.

Because of its long germination time, there is a superstition that Parsley seeds have to go to the devil and back which accounts for its long awaited sprouts. In reality, it's the herb's tough outer seed coat which slows the growing process. To hasten this period, soak the seeds in warm water for a few hours before planting which should soften the armor-like seed coats and allow for a quicker germination period.

Medicinally, Parsley has been used be the Ancient Greeks as well as in Ayurvedic culture as an antispasmodic and remedy for bloating and gas. Medically more valuable than its cousin, the Curly Parsley, this herb's edible flowers and leaves also aide in digestive efforts and act as a treatment for urinary tract infections. Also a great source of nutrients, Italian Dark Green Parsley is chocked full of Vitamin C, Iron and antioxidants.

Parsley 'Flat Leaf', like other varieties of the herb, grow well outside and are very low maintenance but also work well in pots and containers.

High in vitamins and minerals including potassium, iron, copper and manganese. Parsley is a larval food plant for the black swallowtail butterfly!

Review of Italian Parsley Plants June 5, 2015
Reviewer: Jocelyn Webb from Port Arthur, TX United States  
The plants are exceptional. They didn't droop or discolour. The plants have doubled in size. I regularly harvest fresh parsley for meal preparations. The fresh parsley adds great flavor to my dishes. I will use you for my source for my herb plants.
