Petroselinum crispum neapolitanum
Parsley is actually the world’s most popular herb. It has incredible nutritional properties - it’s packed with vitamins C, B, 12, K, and A. Parsley is even said to help arthritis and heart-related problems. Use your parsley in soups, salads, pasta, tomato sauces, sautés, and more to add oomph to your meal.
Sprouts in: 1 - 3 weeks
Harvest in: 5 - 12 weeks
Parsley grows best at 18 - 30 °C / 64 - 86 °F and is a bit slow in the beginning, but once it starts it will grow a lot of leaves fast.
You can start harvesting the leaves one by one in about one month from planting the pod, this way a pod may last up to 10 weeks. If doing so, just cut the whole leaf from the base (with the stem).
If one harvesting event is preferred, then the whole pod should be harvested at once in about 7 weeks after planting.
If some leaves turn yellow, feel free to cut them off - new leaves will grow soon from their growing point.
Parsley leaves should never be removed all at once if you want to harvest them gradually. For that just cut each leaf individually.
