Fun Facts

Fresh parsley contains apiol oil. Plants containing apiol were used by woman in the Middle Ages to terminate pregnancies. Not so funny.

The botanical name for Parsley is Petroselinum, which comes from the Greek word "stone", petra. It was given to parsley because Parsley was found growing on rocky hillsides in Greece.
