Thai Parsley / Stinking / Culantro
Thai Name: Pak chee farang
Thai parsley is also known as pak chee farang in the Thai language. This diverse vegetable is a staple ingredient of a multitude of Thai dishes and cuisine. Thai parsley has the reputation of being a difficult herb to grow because its life span is so short lived and needs comparatively cooler temperatures to grow in abundance. This is why Thai parsley is mainly grown in the northern provinces of Thailand where the temperatures are much cooler than the tropical conditions of southern Thailand.
Thai Parsley is rich in irons, calcium and numerous nutrients, which makes the herb very good for your body. The flavour of the herb is strong and pungent, adding a certain element to dishes that you would immediately notice if the Thai parsley was taken out.
Variations of the plant grow in South America, Caribbean, Mexico, Thailand, Vietnam and generally throughout Asia. Within South American and Caribbean cuisines, Thai Parsley is used in a wide variety of stews and soups.
The flavor of the herb has been compared to coriander and used as a garnish for Thai dishes such as Thai Beef Salad (Yam Nua) and Laab Gai. Thai Parsley is also used in a variety of Thai spicy salads such as Som Tam, which are very popular within Thailand with locals and visitors alike.
Because Thai Parsley thrives in cooler temperatures, this means you will find the herb in a wide range of dishes in the northern provinces of the kingdom. Issan cuisine, from northeast Thailand is famous across the country and uses Thai Parsley in a number of salads and as a garnish for most meals. Issan food is popular, and you will find many Issan restaurants in every region of Thailand, even in the south, which is usually influenced more by Malaysia.

How to grow. Tips
Parsley grows best in moist, well-drained soil, with full sun. It grows best between 22-30 °C (72-86 °F), and usually is grown from seed. Germination is slow, taking four to six weeks, and it often is difficult because of furanocoumarins in its seed coat. Typically, plants grown for the leaf crop are spaced 10 cm apart, while those grown as a root crop are spaced 20 cm apart to allow for the root development.
