Here is the Harris Model Parsnip, Pastinaca sativa. This biennial is the number 1 choice for parsnip selection. They are the easiest to clean and produces roots as long as 12 inches. They can range in color from a slightly bone color to pure ghostly white depending on the soil its grown in. This particular variety likes very lose soil that does not get overly wet and slightly acidic. Harvest early or late fall early spring after last frost for higher sweetness but do tend to be a bit spicy. They need to grow for 2 years before they seed. These go great in soups and stews and taste really great grilled! Open pollinated 90 to 120 days.
