Review:

Fantastic,takes a while to germinate like all parnip but it seems to be the best parnip I ever grew,great and fresh from winter storage in the ground or put some in the frig and stays good for a long time very sweet and nutty delcious I would never depend and any main stay crop for abundants storage and harvest other then Hollow Crown no other parnip in my garden can even compare to its quality and dependability!Other type of parsnip were not as healthy or prolific as these good for and average small farmer tring to make ends meet on the food budget storage type food!

Review:

I just dug the last of these parsnips today after the coldest Feb. on record for this area. Last week it was -4 and -6 two mornings. These parsnips were fine in the ground all winter and just as sweet as can be. Just be sure to dig them before they show signs of new growth. They'll store in the refrigerator, and I'll freeze some for the summer like carrots. They're great steamed and mashed with plenty of butter like potatoes or roasted. These are great parsnips, just be patient getting them started and keep them moist until they get going. Soaking the seed does help. Will be trying the half long Guernseys this year.

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.
