Hamburg Rooted Parsley, also known as Hamburg parsley or turnip-rooted parsley, has a long history dating back to ancient times. Originating in Germany, this unique variety of parsley is valued for both its flavorful leaves and its edible root. It was historically cultivated for its root, which resembles a small turnip and has a mild, parsley-like flavor. Over time, the focus shifted to the leaves, which are now primarily used in culinary applications.

Culinary Uses:
The leaves of Hamburg Rooted Parsley are tender and flavorful, with a slightly sweeter taste compared to curly or flat-leaf parsley. They are commonly used as a garnish or chopped finely to add flavor to soups, stews, sauces, and salads. Additionally, the root of this variety can be harvested and used similarly to other root vegetables, such as carrots or parsnips. It adds a unique depth of flavor to dishes and can be roasted, sautéed, or used in soups and casseroles.

Growth Habit & Planting Instructions:
Hamburg Rooted Parsley is a biennial plant that typically grows 12-18 inches tall. It thrives in well-drained soil and prefers full sun to partial shade. Start seeds indoors or directly sow them outdoors in early spring after the danger of frost has passed. Plant seeds shallowly, about 1/4 inch deep, and space them 6-8 inches apart. Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged during the germination period. Once established, thin the seedlings to allow for proper spacing and encourage robust growth. Harvest the leaves as needed, and wait until the second year to harvest the roots for the best flavor.
