Chervil

(Anthriscus cerefolium) Chervil is an annual herb in the parsley family. It is also called French parsley or garden chervil (to distinguish it from similar plants also called chervil). It is commonly used to season mild-flavored dishes and is a constituent of the French herb mixture 'fines herbes.' It is native to the Caucasus, but Romans spread it throughout Europe, where it is now naturalized. The name chervil is ultimately from the ancient Greek word “chairephyllon,” meaning "leaves of joy." Seeds germinate in 7-14 days. Ideal germination temperature is 70F. Direct seed chervil, ¼ inch deep and 8-12 inches apart. This herb likes a sunny to partial shade location, with well-drained soil and adequate moisture. Super hot weather will cause chervil to bolt, so southern gardeners will benefit from planting it in shade. Harvest leaves just before flowering, when their flavor is most potent.
