Description

The wild parsnip, native to Great Britain and Europe, was recorded in English garden books and herbals by 1548.  Thomas Jefferson planted parsnips in the Monticello vegetable garden from 1774 to 1823.  Grown since the early nineteenth century, Hollow Crown Parsnip is one of the oldest varieties still in cultivation, and boasts long, sweet, white roots.

Direct sow seed thickly, as soon as the soil can be worked in spring.  Allow 2-3 weeks for germination. Harvest after frost for sweeter flavor.  Approximately 500 seeds per packet.
