From Cunnan

Parsley is a biennial herb which grows well (read fast and furiously) from seed (if the slugs don't eat all your seed). Modern parsley comes in 2 main varieties - the ornamental curly parsley, and the much more flavoursome (and probably more period) italian parsley.

It makes a good flavouring for herb butters etc.

In Middle English, the term persel is used for parsley.
