This tasty heirloom dates to the pre-1600s and is grown for its large, flavorsome roots that is superb in soups and stews, as a French fries alternative or simply baked.

Hamburg Rooted Parsley produces a continuous harvest of delicious fresh leaves, as its long, tuberous root develops underground up to 10" long. Packed with rich nutrition and tender flavor, Hamburg Rooted Parsley plants are full of vitamin C, A and produce a tender cream-colored root that can be cooked similar to parsnips or other earthy vegetables! The edible root of this parsley variety can also be blended up as a fresh puree or sauteed into a savory dish.

A wonderful ancient vegetable that deserves to be more widely grown. It has the appearance of a white carrot.

Care and Growing Instructions

Parsley may be grown from seed sown indoors and transplanted outside after your last frost date or sown directly in the garden once soil temperature has reached 40 degrees F. Parsley plants can also be kept as potted specimens, either indoors or outdoors. Parsley is tolerant to cold temperatures and can withstand a frost with no problem.

To grow Parsley, keep weeds under control during the growing season. Weeds compete with plants for water, space and nutrients. Mulching the growing area helps the soil retain moisture and prevents weed seeds from germinating.

For parsley, an organic mulch of aged bark, weed-seed free straw or shredded leaves is ideal. Mulching has many benefits including added organic matter and fertility as it will improve the soil as mulch breaks down in time. Always keep mulches off a plant’s stems to prevent possible rot.

Keep parsley plants well-watered during the growing season, especially during dry spells. Keep the soil moist but not saturated. Parsley plants should not be allowed to dry out.

Do not harvest too much of the plant at one time as this may weaken the plant.
