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.

First year growing this variety and the first time I actually got some parsnips to show for my efforts! They took all season long to grow – my days to maturity was closer to 200. But I was very happy to have some parsnip success! I’ll be growing these again.

In September, I used the damp paper towel method and had excellent germination. I had read that I should plant all the seeds just as soon as a few of them germinated to avoid damaging the root. Unfortunately, those that I planted this way did not perform. So, I tried some more and that time I let each one germinate before planting. Just about all of them came up. In the middle of January, I got tired of waiting and went ahead and pulled up my small Harris Model parsnip patch. They really needed more time, but they definitely outgrew the Hollow Crown and Turga parsnips that I planted at the same time. The roots were still small but big enough to eat. This is the first time I’ve ever tried parsnips, and now I am a big fan and will be growing these again in the spring. They were incredibly sweet and faintly resembled bananas to me, but not to my husband although he also thought they were delicious. I should mention that I am in zone 8A, which is why I tried growing them in the fall. I’ll try growing them in the spring this year as well because I don’t want to wait another year to try them again. Also, I did not experience any disease or pest issues at all until a week or so ago when something started pulling them up out of the ground and leaving only holes behind as evidence. The likely culprits are the greedy family of deer who have done their best to wipe out my fall garden.
