Hollow Crown Parsnip (Pastinaca sativa)
Parsnips are a must-have in any root garden because of their nutty, sweet flavour and mild, white flesh. Post-frost, Heirloom's 12" long, 3" thick roots reveal their enticing flavour. Roasted with potatoes, turnips, and other root vegetables, full-flavored parsnips add sweet heft to soups and stews. Roasts benefit from this lushly sweet accompaniment. It grows best in well-prepared soil.
