An unusual ‘eat-all’ vegetable, closely related to traditional parsley. Parsley ‘Hamburg Arat’ is best grown for its delicious ‘parsnip-like’ roots which make a superb winter vegetable. The large, tapered, white roots have a strong, nutty, celery flavour when roasted. The leaves can be harvested as and when required and added to soups, stews and salads as a zesty seasoning, or simply as an attractive garnish. The roots can be lifted from October onwards, but have good winter hardiness and keep well in the ground throughout winter.
