Default How much parsley to buy?

We're doing our first KCBS contest this weekend, so I've never had to buy garnish before. How much parsley should I buy if the plan is to do the typical "putting green" style box?

Thanks!

Good parsley = 4 to 5 bundles
Bad wilted parsley = 10 bundles

first contest .. first time building a box get extra it will cut your time in half.

Only costs us $5 a piece for 15 bundles!

We buy 2 of the boxes of parsley at RD. I think each box has about 6 bundles? We usually only need one box, but sometime get into the second. I'm usually able to pick through and find some good ones.

Thanks for the info. It looks like if I get a 12 pack, I should be good. We don't have restaurant depot around here, but my neighbor owns a restaurant, she's gonna hook me up.

2 to 3 bundles per box depending on the quality of the parsley. Publix has the best quality locally.

I've noticed that Publix has the best around here as well.

What I've done is made friends with the produce manager at our local store and he's even came out to a close comp and we gave him food..he orders an extra case for me to dig through..sometimes it's hit or miss on quality but we can always get a few good ones at least.seems to me at this time of year parsley usually gets pretty good..this last weekend I built one box and part of another with one bunch(broccoli head size)that's the best end of the spectrum..other times I've had to use up to about 5 bunches when it was really crappy.

I have found good parsley at Whole Paycheck (a.k.a. Whole Foods), but it costs quite a bit more than RD or a regular grocery store. However, they usually have large bunches, so I can get by with buying 4-6 of them and that is usually enough to make boxes. I think I paid $1.69 per bunch last time I bought parsley there.

Better to have too much instead of too little.

Generally running 2-3 bundles per box. Not all will get used but this gives you sufficient quantity to pick out nice tight leaves to be used.
