Hamburg Rooted Parsley
- Petroselinum var. radicosum Open pollinated. 88 days.
- Arat Hamburg Rooted Parsley forms roots up to 11.5" that are nutty flavored with carrot/celery overtones.
- Flat leaves pack a lot of flavor.
- Little known as a vegetable in this country. We hope American gardeners will start growing it and using the roots in stews, soups and mashed with potatoes as they do in Central Europe where it is an important part of their culinary heritage.
Planting Directions: Sow seed indoors ¼” deep 8 weeks before planting into garden. Soil temperature for germination is 50? to 80?. Or sow directly in the garden in well prepared soil in early spring before the last frost. Incorporate rich compost or apply general garden fertilizer prior to planting or transplanting. Plant seed 1/4” deep, when seedlings are 3 to 4” tall, thin plants to 8” apart. Parsley is slow to germinate, 21 or more days and grows best when soil temperature is cooler, 60? to 70?. Thin to 3” apart when the plants are 2” high. Water light and frequently.
