Parsnip - Hollow Crown

This is a favourite for the show bench. Hollow Crown parsnip is one of the oldest varieties which produces long, tapering roots with white skin and well-textured flesh. They do however need good deep soil for the best results. Parsnip is a particularly British vegetable because of its winter hardiness. Thankfully it is now reviving as a popular choice thanks to more imaginative uses in cooking. Roast with your Sunday joint or par-boil, roll in flour and Parmesan cheese and roast, delicious!

Sow from March to May, thinly direct into the growing site 2cm deep in rows 45cm apart. Try to choose a stone-free tilth growing site. Parsnips can take up to 8 weeks to germinate depending on soil temperatures. You are better to delay sowings if soils are wet and cold. Do not transplant seedlings. As soon as seedlings appear, they should be gradually thinned until plants are 10cm apart. Hoe regularly, taking care not to damage the crown of the root.
