Hardy biennial that is usually treated as an annual. Popular because of its much-divided, sometimes curly leaves which have a characteristic flavor and smell. Use leaves fresh or dried and most popular as a garnish. Use as a natural breath sweetener. Store in freezer. High in vitamin C. Grows 18" tall.
The first sprigs may be harvested as soon as the leaves are formed. Keep using the outside leaves, allowing the center of the plant to produce more leaves. For use as a flavoring, the leaves should be dried on a screen in a dry, shady, well-ventilated area. Leaves can then be curshed and stored in an airtight jar. To freeze, pinch foliage from stems and arrange in single layer on a baking sheet. Freeze and store in freezer bags, removing as much air as possible.
