maturity: 80 to 100 days.. the parsley Hamburg rooted. Is a heirloom non gmo seed.. We believe this is from germany from the 1800s maybe before. This is a dual use vegetable the tops are used for parsley. The roots are like white carrots with a unique taste. Will field hold. Well also these are somewhat cold hardy. Grow like a normal root crop. In loose soil and will germinate in 6 to 10 days. Will be a hit at any farmers market. Happy Growing!!!
