If you love growing heirloom veg, then this is probably one of the oldest varieties you will find. Parsnips much like these were eaten by the Romans, and in the middle ages, they were a firm favourite. Despite various plant breeding efforts, the sweet flavour of this parsnip has yet to be beaten. Long before potatoes came to Europe from the new world, the parsnip was a staple food. Rediscover old-fashioned comfort food with these nutritious root vegetables.

  • Growing Information

    How to Sow

    Parsnips are easy to grow and they're not fussy about soil, but they won't develop straight roots if they're grown in stony soil. Once the soil is prepared, sow your seeds 5mm deep and keep moist until they germinate.

    How to Harvest

    Uproot your parsnips, wash off excess soil and remove the leaves by grabbing and twisting. Stored in a plastic bag, they can remain fresh for months in the refrigerator.
