Besides, you probably might want to know what parsley is. Parsley, which is botanically known as Petroselinum crispum is a biennial flowering plant. Parsley belongs to the family of Apiaceae and it is originally from the central and eastern part of the Mediterranean before spreading to Europe and other parts of the World. It is commonly planted as either a vegetable, spice or herb.
Parsley grows as an annual herb in the subtropical and tropical parts of the world and grows as a green biennial plant in the temperate regions. Parsley seeds are ovoid with prominent remnants at the apex and they grow and thrive best in moist, well-drained soil, with enough sunlight. Parsley grows best between 70 to 86 °F (20 to 30 °C) after danger of frost. Parsley forms a rosette of tripinnate leaves with several leaflets and a taproot that serves as food storage during the winter period. How long does parsley take to grow?
