There are several varieties, but the main ones are the curly-leaved ones which are the most decorative but the plain-leaved ones have the most flavour. Used in fines herbes and bouquet garni, it's also often used as a garnish. Like any vegetables, fruits and herbs, parsley is good for you and full of Vitamin C!
