Hardy annual An amazingly vigorous parsnip, far out-yielding the market standards. Large, heavy roots with outstanding sweet, nutty flavor.
Soil & Water: Parsnips require light, deeply cultivated soil. They do not have high nutritive or watering requirements (too much nitrogen or manure causes forking). Ideal pH is 6.5.
Planting & Growing: Sow seed directly as soon as ground can be worked. Lightly cover with compost or soil that won't form a crust.
Harvesting & Storage: Roots will be ready for lifting from fall onwards. They can be left in the soil all winter, lifting as required. It's best to mark each plant so that it is possible to find them once the foliage has died down.
