Is a reliable root parsley of the so called Berliner-type with its typical medium length conical roots. The root, which has a small top fastening and quite small tops, narrows evenly and becomes slenderer and longer than the Hamburg-sorts withtheir short thick roots and large tops. It has few side-roots and is resistant to rust and sponginess. Berliner Halblang provides a large, good, storable crop. A portion contains about 400 seeds.
