Caption: Parsley root. Light micrograph of a transverse (cross) section through a root of parsley, Petroselinum crispum. At centre (dark spheres) are xylem conducting vessels that fill the pith of the root; xylem serves to transport water from root up to the stems and leaves. External to the xylem is a thick outer region of cells involved in the storage of plant nutrients from reserve products of photosynthesis. The root is tuber-like. Parsley is grown in two varieties: one in which the leaves are used as a herb; in turnip-rooted parsley the plant is grown as a root vegetable and the long conical tap roots resemble parsnips and are used in the same way. Magnification: x14 at 35mm size.
