I aways considered the curley leaf to be for decoration, not much flavor IMO.
Eclectic gardening style, drawing from 45 years of interest and experience. Mostly plant in raised beds and containers primarily using intensive gardening techniques.

I agree with Alex, although all parsley has some nutrients, and can freshen your breath. :)

Curley leaf parsley has a more bitter/stronger flavor I think vs flat leaf Italian parsley. Curley for garnish, flat leaf for cooking. :)
