Hollow Crown Improved Parsnip Seeds
Long, smooth, tender, and sugary roots can grow up to 30 cm (12″) long and be up to 7.5 cm (3″) wide at the shoulder. Be very patient with germination – it can take up to 3 weeks for the seed to sprout. Also do not be in a hurry to harvest your parsnips in the fall. Roots require exposure to frosty weather to develop full flavor the longer you wait into November and December, the better the flavor gets.
