I purchased this parsley seed from "Seeds of Change" and am growing it for the first time in 2006. I am growing it in a container. So far, it is very slow to get going, but it's starting to look good. The seed packet refers to it as finely-curled, compact, garnishing variety with dark green double-curled leaves and long stems for easy bunching. 75 to 85 days to maturity.
