Description

British-bred, high yields of uniform long slender roots. Good quality with canker resistance. Excellent source of vitamin C and folate. It has fantastic flavour and attractive cream skin, making it perfect for roasting.

Parsnips are easy to grow and delicious fried, roasted or stewed. Stands in the ground over the winter and freezes well.

Outdoors: sow thinly February-May, where they are to crop, 1.5cm (½”) deep, directly into finely-prepared, light, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Allow 40cm (16″) between rows. Early sowings may benefit from cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 14-32 days. Thin plants to 20cm (8″) apart. Replace any dislodged soil. Water well until plants are established. Leave roots in the ground until required, as they improve after exposure to autumn frosts. Harvest: October-February.

Tip: A deeply-dug soil will help this variety attain its full size and produce exhibition-quality roots.
