75 days until maturity. Leaves are deeply and closely curled. Flavor is better than most curled varieties. Upright foliage helps keep leaves clean. Bunches well. Holds well in heat and drought without discoloration. Use for garnishes and flavoring. Excellent for garden or market. (Petroselinum crispum)

Growing instructions: Parsley seed germinates very slowly, requiring 3 to 4 weeks. Sow seeds in early spring directly into garden, 1/4" deep, and thin to 4 to 6". Keep well watered. Soaking seed in water for 24 hours will speed germination. Mark location with radish seed. Another fast germination procedure: Plant seed in a small flat of soil or planting medium. Place flat in a zip-lock bag, and freeze for 12 to 24 hours. Remove from freezer and keep moist until seed begins to germinate. Requires full sun

Packet: 1.30g - approximately 584 seeds
