Additional Information

Parsley

About 11,000 seed/oz.

Hardy annual in the North. A shining star of Jason Kafka’s wholesale program. He grows Double Curled, Krausa, and Plain Leaf, moving a few hundred bunches per week and says that if you have the market, these may bring more money per row foot than any other crop. When these hardy biennials bolt, he gets a bonus by using the umbels as filler for flower bouquets.

Culture: Very hardy. Parsley seed is short-lived; test old seed before sowing. Very slow to germinate (up to 30 days). Minimum germination temperature 40°, optimal range 50–80°. Soaking seed 8–12 hours will hasten germination. Do not allow soil surface to dry out.
