A particularly fine variety producing long, smooth, white-skinned, tapering roots of uniform size.

This RHS AGM variety makes a useful crop for the organic gardener, having been specially bred for its resistance to canker.

How to sow
Direct sow parsnip seeds outdoors from mid spring to early summer, as soon as the ground is workable. Avoid sowing in cold or wet soils. Grow parsnips in a sunny position in stone-free, well prepared ground that has been deeply cultivated. Parsnips prefer a fertile, light, well drained soil.
Sow parsnip seeds thinly at a depth of 2cm ( 3/4in) in drills 30cm (12″) apart. Germination is slow and may take up to 28 days. When large enough to handle, thin out the seedlings within each row to 7cm (3in) apart or 10cm (4″) apart if larger roots are required.
