Description

Organic Parsley: Moss Curly 2. Petroselinum crispum var. crispum.

Moss curly parsley grows well here in Ireland, growing to around 50cms tall. Really yummy rich flavour.

How to grow:
Sow fresh seed, this is the most important part. Germination can be slow or erratic so be patient. Can start as early as February in modules on heat undercover and plant out in May. Or direct sow thin and wide into a well prepared seed bed from April to June. It’s biennial here so you should get winter and next spring from them. Grow in full sun.

Problem solving:
Keep slugs off when young. It does prefer to have warm feet but not to the point of drying out. Water from below.

Favourite ways to eat them:
An essential ingredient in many dishes, soups, stews, as a garnish. Reported to have a soothing effect on a sensitive stomach and a mouthful of raw leaves counteracts the effects of garlic breath.

Cultural history:
A biennial plant here in the north, it is an annual in subtropical and tropical areas. Flat leaf parsley is closer to the wild relations than curly. Originally from the Mediterranean area it has been cultivated for centuries.

Avg seed weight:  1g  = ~450 seeds.
