Deliciously different, this heirloom Gigante Italian parsley has exceptionally large, flat, glossy leaves whose sweet and mellow flavor will win your taste buds' applause. We import this variety because it tastes so good, without the harsh metallic overtones sometimes found in domestic parsley. The deep green, flavorful leaves are wonderful sprinkled on salads, vegetables, potatoes, rice, seafood and pasta. Grow some in a pot near your kitchen to enjoy in everyday cooking.

Planting & Care
Planting:To Start Outdoors: Start parsley in spring when weather is settled but still cool and/or in late summer in mild winter climates. Plant in full sun or half-day sun, if climate is very hot. Sow seeds 1 - 2" apart into well-worked, fertile seedbed. Cover 1/4" deep. Parsley germinate unevenly over several weeks; be patient and keep seedbed evenly moist. Using synthetic row covers to hold moisture during germination is helpful; remove when seedlings are well established. To Plant Indoors: Sow parsley seeds in early spring in a container of seed starting mix. Cover 1/4" deep, and keep container moist but not soggy until seedlings emerge. Provide a good light source. Feed seedlings frequently until ready to transplant when several inches tall.
Growing: Parsley needs rich, moist soil and ample spacing for lush harvests. Thin early and keep well weeded and watered. Begin to harvest sparingly once plants have 8 - 10 leaves. Fertilize frequently with a high nitrogen source.
