Chaerophyllum tainturieri (known by the common names hairyfruit chervil and Southern chervil) is an annual forb native to the Southeastern United States, with disjunct populations in Arizona and New Mexico. It is a common plant, found in glades, fields, and disturbed areas. It produces small white umbels of flowers in the spring.

This species was the subject of a germination study, which revealed a new type of seed dormancy.
