In ancient times, the Greeks and Romans cultivated Parsley. Traditionally used as a medicinal herb, Parsley did not find its way into culinary dishes until later.
An herb with bright and flat leaves, Parsley contains the flavonoids and terpenes limonene and myristicin, in addition to being high in phosphorus and calcium. It also has been shown to have anti-hyperlipidemia qualities.
Italian Parsley is usually dried and incorporated into Italian herb blends alongside rosemary, thyme, and oregano. You can also use it fresh, adding it late to a dish as a final seasoning, garnish, or topping.
Care & Harvest
💡Temperature: Prefers cooler temperatures (60-70°F).
🌿 Harvest: Harvesting frequently helps prolong the plant's life. Pinch off individual leaves, or use clean shears to cut stems above growth nodes. Once the plant reaches 6 inches, you can begin trimming larger, outer leaves. Leave 1/3 of the height of the plant at a time to ensure it continues growing.
