Parsnip Gladiator F1(RHS Award of Garden Merit)

Description

EXHIBITION.

 
Slightly larger than standard type, Gladiator F1 has a more refined shape of hybrid quality. The root has smooth white skin and is canker resistant.

 

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!
