Easy to grow, pleasantly flavored variety with versatile uses

It germinates readily and grows vigorously to form graceful plumes of beautifully green, double curled leaves. These ornamental plants provide handfuls of pretty leafy sprigs for edible garnishes and decorations throughout the season or you can cut and add them with abandon to every savory dish you cook.Apiaceae Petroselinum crispum
