In 2017, we tested several Italian flat leaf parsley strains and unearthed a clear winner. Italian Dark Green Flat Parsley has highly dissected, forest-green leaves on upright plants that resist bolting. Sweet, fragrant leaves are great in fresh salads, salsa, soups and tabouli. A good variety for drying.
Days to Maturity: 70
Latin name: Petroselinum crispum
