A fine textured, tasty Parsnip with a delicious nutty flavour. Leave the roots in the ground as late as frost permits in fall.
Sow as early as possible in the spring. Parsnip seed sprouts and grows slowly. Place seed 1 cm (1/2 in) deep. One or two seeds every inch of row, rows 45 cm (18 in) apart. Harvest roots after first frost as they will have a sweeter flavor. Dig roots on a dry day, if possible, for cleaner storage. Trim off leaves close to crown. Do not fertilize as it can cause hairy roots.
