About parsley

Garden parsley is a bright green, biennial plant in temperate climates, or an annual herb in subtropical and tropical areas. Where it grows as a biennial, in the first year, it forms a rosette of tripinnate leaves 10–25 cm long with numerous 1–3 cm leaflets, and a taproot used as a food store over the winter.

In The Records

Parsley is native to the Mediterranean and western Asia. According to ancient Greek legend, Parsley sprang from the place hero Archemorus fell when he was eaten by serpents. The Greeks held the plant sacred, and it was never put on their plates.
