About parsley 'italian giant'

Also known as Italian parsley, flat leaf parsley grows dark green shiny leaves with a strong sweet flavour. Parsley 'Italian Giant' is best known for its gourmet uses, since it can withstand heat and retains its flavour better than household curly parsley.
Italian Giant, is a selective plant with deeply cut, bright green leaves. Known to have better flavour than other varieties, it is increasingly popular in the kitchen, and is indispensable for a huge range of cooked and salad dishes. It is the choice parsley for drying.
