First-century herbalist Dioscorides named this genus Petroselinum, deriving the name from the Greek "petros", meaning "rock," and "selinon", meaning "celery." The common name Parsley derives from that genus name.
Parsley, a biennial native to southern Europe, thrives in full sun to partial shade and in moist soils where limestone is prevalent. The hermaphroditic, aromatic flowers grow in compound umbels. The leaves are wavy and finely divided.
The leaves are a poplar culinary seasoning. They are best eaten fresh and raw, rather than dried or cooked.
The ancient Greeks believed that Parsley sprang from the blood of Archemorus, the herald of death; soldiers avoided eating it before battle, and it was used to make wreaths for the tombs of the dead. Today, the essential oil is used in men's perfumes.
