Grown as an annual, 'Moss Curled' parsley can grow through fall and into winter because of its cold tolerance. It has a milder flavor than flat-leaved types and can enhance almost any food, in flavor and in beauty. It is a very nutritious herb (vitamins A, B, C), and freshens breath. Pair with flowers in ornamental plantings, and grow indoors in the winter!
