Official Name: Petroselinum crispum

General description: Parsley is a flowering plant native to the Mediterranean. The two most common types are French curly-leaf and Italian flat-leaf. Today, it’s widely used as a fresh culinary herb or dried spice. It’s bright green in color and has a mild, bitter flavor that pairs well with many recipes. Parsley is a type of herbaceous plant that belongs to the same family as celery, carrot and cumin (Apiaceae). Exact origin of parsley is unknown. Some researchers believe that parsley originates from Sardinia. Cultivation of parsley started 2000 years ago. This plant can be found around the world today. Parsley prefers areas that provide partial shade and well-drained soil, rich in minerals. Taste of parsley depends on the type of soil and climate conditions. Parsley is one the most popular spices in the world. Other than that, parsley is used in cosmetic, pharmaceutical and medical industry. Parsley has bright green, fern-like leaves that grow from centrally positioned green stem. Leaf stems have stronger taste than leaves.

How to grow: 

  • For a head start, plant seeds in individual pots indoors 10 to 12 weeks before the last spring frost. For better germination, you can soak the seeds overnight.
  • Plant the seeds 3 to 4 weeks before the last spring frost because parsley is a slow starter. (The plants can handle the cold weather.) It can take up to 3 weeks for the plants to sprout.
  • Plant the seeds in moist, rich soil about 6 to 8 inches apart. For thinner plants, plant about 6 to 10 inches apart. Try to pick an area that is weed-free; that way, you’ll be able to see the parsley sprouting after about 3 weeks.
  • You can use a fluorescent light to help the seedlings grow. Make sure it remains at least two inches above the leaves at all times.
  • To ensure the best growth, the soil should be around 70ºF.
  • Plant parsley near asparaguscorn, and tomatoes in your garden.
  • Be sure to water the seeds often while they germinate so that they don’t dry out.
  • Throughout the summer, be sure to water the plants evenly.
  • When the leaf stems have three segments, parsley is ready to be harvested.
  • Cut leaves from the outer portions of the plant whenever you need them. Leave the inner portions of the plant to mature.
  • One method of storing the parsley fresh is to put the leaf stalks in water and keep them in the refrigerator.
  • Another method of storage is drying the parsley. Cut the parsley at the base and hang it in a well-ventilated, shady, and warm place. Once it’s completely dry, crumble it up and store it in an airtight container.
  • If you want fresh parsley throughout the winter, replant a parsley plant in a pot and keep it in a sunny window.
