What is Curly Leaf (Triple Curled) Parsley?
Tripled Curled Parsley (Petroselinum sativum) is an easy-to-grow green herb with ruffled, curly leaves. It originated in the Mediterranean and has been cultivated for more than 2,000 years. Some historians credit Charles the Great, the Holy Roman Emperor, for making this herb so popular because he had it gown all over his property.
Parsley is the ideal herb for a cottage garden, a pot or an apartment setting - cut the leaves as you need them and leave the rest for another day.
Culinary Uses for Curly Leaf Parsley
Parsley is the perfect summer or winter herb garnish and adds a clean and peppery taste to Mexican Chimichurri sauce, Middle Eastern tabbouleh, or a host of European recipes. We love it tossed through boiled baby potatoes with rock salt, olive oil and a good squeeze of lemon.
Growing Conditions - Triple Curled Parsley
We recommend that you grow Parsley from seed, as it can be tricky to transplant the larger plants. Choose a sunny - partly shady spot with rich free draining soil. Companion plant with Onion, Asparagus and Tomatoes.
Parsley can handle a light frost or a windy spot and is somewhat drought tolerant (although regular water produces a better quality harvest). You can plant this herb year-round in warmer parts of New Zealand, but autumn is ideal.
