Winter Chervil Herb Growing Habits
Non-GMO (Anthriscus cerefolium) Winter Chervil plants grow as upright annual herbs that are slightly more hardy than other chervil varieties. During the cooler conditions of late spring to early summer, your Winter Chervil crop will begin to produce their thin forest-green leaves that give off a mildly sweet aroma. Winter Chervil can reach 10-15” tall and develop a flavor similar to tarragon and anise. As Chervil herbs lose flavor with time, don’t wait too long unless you want your Winter Chervil to flower and go to see. Your hardy and fresh Winter Chervil Herbs will be fully-mature for either a spring or fall harvest.
