PARSLEY, Darki Curled Leaf

Petroselinum crispum var. Crispum.

Curly parsley is generally used as a garnish, but it is becoming more indispensable in cooking. It is a major component of bouquet garni, a French term for a collection of mixed herbs. Darki is an outstanding variety that forms a clump of very tight, heavy and curled dark green leaves. Excellent flavour and cold weather tolerance.
