Garden parsley is a bright green, hairless, biennial, herbaceous plant in temperate climates, or an annual herb in subtropical and tropical areas.
Root parsley is very common in central and eastern European cuisines, where it is used as a vegetable in many soups, stews and casseroles.
Parsley should not be consumed in excess by pregnant women. It is safe in normal food quantities, but large amounts can have uterotonic effects. [Source: Wikipedia]
