Naturally sweet flavor.

Reliable food during the winter months; 

parsnips can grow more of your dietary needs in a smaller 

space than almost anything. Up until the potato arrived from Peru, parsnips were the dietary staple for much of Europe. 

Grown like Carrots, but Parsnips are hardier-the roots will take 0 F 

in the ground and flavor improves with frost. 

Seed takes a long time to germinate--mulch lightly and keep moist until seeds sprout. 

If your soil crusts when dry, consider covering the seed with potting mix, coco coir, sand, or other non-crusting medium. 

A wonderful British vegetable, the roots are delicious roasted braised or fried.
