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.

Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes
