Parsnip Tender and True
With superb flavour and large roots, this variety is ideal for both the kitchen and the show bench. The long tapering roots have good canker resistance and grow beautifully straight in stone free soils. Parsnip 'Tender and True' is a particularly popular variety for its deliciously sweet flesh that is virtually coreless. Height and spread: 45cm (18").
Direct sow parsnip seeds outdoors from April to May to produce quality roots with less risk of canker disease. Avoid sowing in cold or wet soils.
