Parsley dates to the ancient Greeks who associated it with grave illness, hence the saying, "to be in need of parsley." Jefferson grew the plain-leaf or Italian Parsley as early as 1774 and listed it as Common Parsley in his vegetable garden calendar. This type is considered more flavorful than the curled form described by Pliny.
