Parsley has been around for ages. According to legend, Parsley came up where the blood of the Greek hero Archemorus was spilled when he was eaten by Serpents. In Greece, it was used in fashion wreath for graves. It was also used to deodorize corpses. The Greeks also used it to bestow upon the winners of sports games. Parsley is used in the Hebrew Celebration of passover to symbolize spring and rebirth. In Medieval Times, it was believed that Parsley had to travel back and forth to hell before it sprouted, making superstitious farmers refuse to plant it.
