Today added to seed network P. crispum var. neapolitanum ‘Gigante Italian’, may be same as ‘Giant From Italy’ and ‘Gigante di Napoli’.
This is truly wonderful Parsley from Northern Italy. Taller than average parsley, Italian Gigante plants have very big, deep green shiny leaves with an exceptionally mellow and sweet fuller flavour than standard plain Parsley. I love it.
I was searching for information about this variety history. No sure, whether it’s a heirloom variety. Maybe you know?
In seed exchange and seed saving initiative started by Patrick, I offer seeds from my own garden.
If you have vegetable seeds from your own garden, let’s exchange!
