This vegetable has never gained the popularity it enjoys in Europe. The roots are not unlike a thin parsnip in appearance but the delicate flavour is delightful. Easy to grow and well worth trying. Sow the seeds in batches of 3 seeds at 15cm intervals in April. Thin to single seedlings as soon as possible. Keep weed free and water regularly. Lift roots carefully from October onwards. Can be left in the ground and harvested as required through the winter.
