Parsley seeds. For larger size see the note.

Parsley or garden parsley (Petroselinum crispum) is native to the central Mediterranean region and naturalized elsewhere in Europe. It is grown as a spice and a vegetable as well as a culinary herb. Parsley is an annual in warmer climates and a biennial in colder climates. (See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parsley)

As well as having culinary value, parsley is used in herbal medicine and western medicine. The seeds and the rest of the plant contain many active chemical compounds including apiol. For more about apiol, see en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apiol

The seeds are 2-3 mm long.

Un'altra splendida macro. Anche qui lo sfondo magnificamente sfuocato risalta la perfezione dei semi in primo piano esaltandoli nei minimi particolari.

Thanks. It was a deliberate misquote because I don't think most people would think parsley as being big.
