Flat Leaf Parsley is one of the easiest microgreen herbs to grow, although the germination and growth rate are very slow relative to most microgreens.
Flat Leaf or Italian Parsley is darker and more flavorful than curly parsley. It also is much easier to chop and incorporate into food than curly parsley.
Parsley microgreens add flavor to any dish, especially Italian food. Parsley is also a great garnish.
Parsley microgreens are great to add to baby green salads; put them on sandwiches. You can cook with them too, or as a garnish.
I like the taste of parsley microgreen better than the mature herb.
Parsley will germinate 7- to 15 days after sowing. However, some parsley seeds delay germination; because of this, harvest shouldn’t occur until 30 days to allow all seeds to grow.
If you use a lot of parsley microgreens, sow multiple trays 15 days apart so you can have a continuous supply.
