An excellent, tried and tested variety which is suitable for virtually any soil type. It has good canker resistance and produces lots of medium length, smooth-skinned and fineflavoured parsnips over a long cropping period.
Sow thinly, 1cm (½in) deep in drills 20cm (8in) apart. Sow clusters of 3 or 4 seeds every 20cm (8in) and thin out to the strongest seedling after germination. Germination can sometimes be very slow.
Seedlings should not require thinning. Harvest the roots from autumn onwards, leaving them in the ground if required.
