Tasty white long roots with sweet flavor; harvest after frost; a standard in all fall gardens. A popular variety in the 1820's with very long roots.

Review:

These are delicious. They have cores which are not tough, so don't cut them out. We start them when the daffodils bloom. You can presprout them on damp paper towels on a plate covered with plastic wrap. That helps with germination. Sprout for only 3-4 days because the roots are fragile and come out quickly. Plant out 2" apart in rows 8" apart; thin to 4" apart. Water every day until they all come up. We begin harvesting these for Thanksgiving dinner. They get sweeter as the weather gets colder. We do not mulch and they keep in the garden all winter (gets down to -5 degrees F here). Make sure you harvest all of them before the end of March. We peel them, cut them into 1" chunks, and roast them in the oven with a little salt and coconut oil. They are delicious. We will grow these again and again. We never seem to have enough.

Review:

First time growing parsnips. They were the first thing in the ground in May and I just pulled them up at the end of November after the ground had frozen. Literally just planted them and forgot about them until harvest time. All the parsnips were super sweet and very large, yet not woody. Have cooked with them alot and its one of my new favorite veggies.

Review:

I have never grown parsnips before and had never eaten them before last year. When I tasted them for the first time I said I need to grow these. I read about how difficult parsnips were to germinate, especially in the southern heat but thought I'd give them a try anyway. I planted them early spring and then planted other spring things around them in my raised beds. They germinated kind of sporadically and at first I thought they were weeds and pulled some up before I realized what they were. They are still coming up (its late May) and the earliest ones have very leafy tall stems and look really healthy. I have beetles all over my broccoli and kale but nothing seems to be bothering my parsnips. They look so healthy and green. I can't wait until time to harvest and eat them.

Review:

Grew these last year in unimproved clay soil and they were great! Germinated well. Tolerated heat. Very tasty fried, boiled and roasted. Left them in ground until snowed in NOV and they were still quite good.
