Pacific Parsnip

110 days. Brand new Pacific is an early producer, so you can start sowing and harvesting Parsnips even earlier in the season, though a kiss or two of fall frost makes these creamy white, broad and bulky, gently tapered roots even sweeter. Pacific has a bold, classic Parsnip flavor and is wonderful boiled and mashed, roasted, or added to hearty winter soups and stews. It stores exceptionally well. (F1.)

Historically known as the food staple of royalty for its delectably sweet flavor, nutrients and carbohydrate richness, Parsnips reigned as king of the tubers until Potatoes gained supremacy. Parsnips are a bit slow to germinate, so use fresh seed and sow thickly. Sow seed directly into a deeply dug bed in full sun as soon as the ground can be worked in the spring.

Average seed life: 1 year.
