Parsley – Curly

A crinkled leaved traditional parsley. Strong, short stems support big clusters of highly curled dark-green leaves. Great non-bitter flavour for pasta or potato dishes, chopped in salads and soups or as a beautiful garnish. Curly dark leaves mounted upon sturdy stems bring you a delicate flavour that is perfect for use in recipes requiring large quantities of parsley.

Available only as a plant. Not available as seed.
