Menuette Parsley Seed
New! One-of-a-kind fern-leaf parsley.
A completely new leaf shape that looks very similar to dill. The deeply incised, feathery, narrow leaflets are easy to chop during kitchen preparation and make an elegant garnish or bunch. Delicate in appearance but firm enough to stand up to handling, packing, and plating. Standard parsley flavor. Suitable for field or pot production. Has shown some resistance to tipburn in our trials. Avg. 20,700 seeds/oz. Packet: 200 seeds.

SOWING: Transplant (recommended): Sow in 1" cell containers. Seeds take at least 3 weeks to germinate.
Direct seed: Sow in spring after the danger of frost has passed, about 1/4- 1/2" deep, 3 seeds per inch in single rows or 2-3" wide bands 12-18" apart. Thin plants to 8-12" apart.
DISEASES: Prevent disease with crop rotation and good sanitation.
LIGHT PREFERENCE: Sun.
SOIL REQUIREMENTS: Grows well in moist, fertile soil. If planted in a well-drained location, it can normally be wintered over to produce a crop early the following spring. Mulch where temperatures go below 0°F (-18°C).
Water during dry spells and side-dress with compost or a balanced fertilizer once or twice during the growing period, if necessary.
PLANT HEIGHT: Varies.
PLANT SPACING: 8-12".
HARDINESS ZONES: Biennial.
HARVEST: Clip leaves when needed. To maintain the crispness and appearance of freshly harvested parsley, store at temperatures of 32–36°F/0–2.2°C at 95% relative humidity. Parsley can be used either fresh or dried. To dry, wash clipped leaves and spread out shallowly on screens in a warm, airy place. When thoroughly dry, rub and store in jars.
PELLETED SEED: If using pelleted seed, we recommend consistent soil moisture during the germination period. Pelleted seed must be kept cool and dry prior to planting, and should be used within one year of purchase.
SCIENTIFIC NAME: Petroselinum crispum
