Harris Model Parsnip
Approximate seeds: 150
Heirloom | Maturity: 130 Days | Sweet | All-American Selections Winner
Parsnips are long roots, much like a carrot, that have a flavor resembling that of nuts. The Harris Model parsnip is a great variety that has uniform white roots. The roots grow up to 12″ long with tender, sweet flesh. Parsnips grow similar to carrots and don’t handle mid-summer weather well. Parsnips should be planted in the early spring in well drained soil. Place seeds in tilled and enriched soil right after the last frost. Tilling deeper gives the roots more room to grow and develop.
