Chervil (Anthriscus cerefolium, Apiaceae)

Veriety overview

Annual, height 50 cm. 
Tsw:  2-3 g Seed count per 10 g = 3300-5000 seeds. 

Sowing:  For industrial growing direct 10-15 g/100 m², for market 20-30 g/100 m². 

Depending on the spacing in the rows and the desired size at harvest, for pot growing 40-50 g/1000 plants. 

Cultivation:  Space rows for fresh-cutting 10-15 cm apart, for industrial growing space rows 20 cm apart or double rows 10 cm apart and 30-40 cm between the double rows. Very quick growing, therefore sow repeatedly every 2-3 weeks for market. Flowers quickly from spring sowings, therefore for industrial use it is better to sow at the end of June which reduces the risk of flowering and makes a second cut possible. Chervil loses a lot of its aroma when dried, therefore for industrial use its mostly frozen. 

Use:  Fresh for flavouring soups, sauces, salads, yoghurt and egg dishes.
