Italian Giant flat-leaved Parsley(Petroselinum crispum var. neapolitanum)Herb in 9cm Pot

Italian Giant Parsley is a biennial that grows to 90cm, preferring rich well-drained soil in a sunny or partially shady site. It is a clump-forming plant that is easy to germinate from seed, responding best when the seed is soaked overnight in hot water prior to sowing. Showing very prolific growth, Italian Giant flat-leaved Parsley produces a white tap root and a profusion of leaves, which have a flat triangular shape and a dark green colour. These leaves are the main crop, being very rich in iron and Vitamin A, C and E, and have a stronger flavour than the curled variety. 

Herb Usage

As a garnish, no herb is better known than Parsley (Petroselinum crispum), and it is grown in several varieties around the world. Leaves of flat leaved parsley are used to add flavour to food as well as a garnish. Parsley also has the ability to counter strong odours so is often used with garlic or onions. Pick leaves during the first year for fresh use or for freezing (by far the best method of preserving parsley. Fresh cut parsley can last up to week in the fridge if put in a glass of water in the fridge, covering the leaves with a plastic bag and changing the water every two days. Can be added at the end of cooking to casseroles, tomato based dishes, risotto's and fish dishes. A delicious variety to make your own parsley sauce great with a Gammon Steak or white fish.
