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, Dark Green Italian and Krausa, moves 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). Soaking seed 8–12 hours will hasten germination. Do not allow soil surface to dry out.

Minimum germination temperature 40°, optimal range 50–80°.

Greens

  • Days to maturity are from emergence after direct seeding.
  • All greens are open-pollinated except where noted.

    Culture: When to harvest greens? Research from trials conducted in England and Kenya showed looseleaf lettuce, red chard and arugula harvested in the evening had a longer shelf life than when picked in the morning.
