Parsnip student heritage seed by Mr. Fothergill's. Classic with great flavour. Very good heritage variety, long rooted, narrow core. Good flavour, even better after frost.

Useful Information: Vitamin C; Vitamin E; Folate

Sow & Grow:

Outdoors: sow thinly February-May, where they are to crop, 1.5 cm (1/2-inch) deep, directly into finely-prepared, light, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Allow 40 cm (16-inch) between rows. Early sowings may benefit from cloche protection.

Seedlings usually appear in 14-32 days. Thin plants to 20 cm (8-inch) apart. Replace any dislodged soil. Water well until plants are established.

Leave roots in the ground until required, as they improve after exposure to autumn frosts.

Harvest: October-February.

Hints & Tips:

A deeply-dug soil will help this variety attain its full size. The removal of as many stones as possible will minimize root damage.
