Parsnip - Pinnacle F1
This is a high quality British bred hybrid which is Canker resistant for clearer, smooth skinned roots. It is a long and slender variety with exceptional flavour and an excellent source of vitamin C and folate.
Sow outdoors thinly where they are to crop, 1.5cm deep directly into finely prepared soil which has already been watered. Allow 40cm between rows. Early sowings benefit from cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 14-32 days. Thin plants to 20cm apart. Replace any dislodged soil. Water well until plants are established. Leave roots to be eaten in the ground until required, as the flavour improves after exposure to autumn frosts.
