- The best parsley for culinary use, the Giant Italian is a productive variety with strong stems.
Petroselinum crispum (72 days) We got this a few years ago with the name on the package "Prezzemolo Gigante D Italia". Prezzemolo in Italy means "to turn up everywhere". If that means it is hardy, then we agree! A parsley with a deep, rich and strong flavor that will add to just about any dish. We add parsley to all of our soups and sometimes to our salads.
