Parsnip Roots

Big on sweet with a dash of spice, the Crown Hollow Parsnip (Pastinaca sativa) has earned its place in US gardens. The roots are an impressive 10 to 15 in. long and keep well. Roast them or slice them up to fry like chips. 105 days to maturity.

Each packet contains approximately 600 seeds.

Planting and Harvesting Tips:
These easy to grow crops are one of fall’s best vegetables. In spring, plant two inches apart — 1/2 inch deep — into loose soil with plenty of organic matter. Space rows 18-24 inches apart and provide plenty of water throughout the growing season. Plants take 3-4 months to mature.

For best flavor, pull or dig roots when they are 3-5 inches in diameter. Larger bulbs tend to be tough. A light frost will improve crops. Harvest greens as needed after four inches. A heavy straw mulch will extend your harvest into early winter.
