70 days — Introduced in the late 1800s, 'Moss Curled' parsley's synonyms include, 'Forest Green', 'Dark Moss Curled', and 'Fine Moss Curled' parsley. It is a standard, early maturing variety that almost everyone has seen at one point or another as it is commonly used in restaurants as a garnish, as well as on grocery store produce stands.

'Moss Curled' parsley plants are vigorous and compact with leaves that are deeply cut and curled, resembling moss. Parsley becomes very bitter as the plant starts to flower. Parsley has been cultivated for centuries and is used as a garnish, palate cleanser, flavoring in soups, salads, and as a seasoning in other recipes. Some varieties, like 'Hamburg Rooted', are used as a vegetable.

A biennial plant, parsley is typically grown as an annual. Each packet contains two grams, which is approximately 300 seeds.
Medicinal Herbs Herbalists have used it as a breath freshener, digestive aid, and in tea to treat high blood pressure and rheumatism. Because it is high in vitamins A and C, it has also been used as a quinine substitute to treat malaria.
