Parsley – Italian Giant (Organic)


A large flat-leaved parsley variety with excellent strong flavour – more pungent than curled types. Parsley is probably the most well-known herb in the world. It is native to the Mediterranean region and was first grown mostly for medicinal purposes. It seems to have become more commonly used in Northern Europe since the Middle Ages and is today’s favourite for garnishing, in salads and for cooking.

This Italian variety grows an abundance of dark green leaves. It can be grown in pots as well as in the ground all year round.
